My mounted PDFs wont export
« on: June 24, 2013, 12:26:10 pm »
Hi!

This is probably a really silly and simple question, but I've been looking around and I can't seem to find any solution to my problem.
I want to create a page where I add small thumbnails of PDFs, so I use the "Insert Picture Frame" and then "Get Image", where I choose a PDF-file (a high resolution pic). So far so good, but when I try to export the page to PDF, I get a message that the image is a mounted PDF - and it's not possible to export. What am I doing wrong? Isn't it possible to export to PDF if the documents contains mounted PDF pictures? Or have I missed a step somewhere?

I really need help on this. Thank you so much!

BR
Emma

What you see is probably a warning, not an error message.

A mounted PDF can be exported in two ways:

1. Embedded (there is a checkbox in the PDF export dialog)
2. Rasterized (requires ghostscript)

1 has the advantage that the PDF quality remains, but color management may not be correctly handled

2 can mean a quality loss, and that is probably what the warning you see is about.

Oh, it was that simple! You were exactly right, it was just a warning and it worked as soon as I checked the "Embed" box.

Thank you so much Nermander!
