native ID files. Talk with your people. In my case, the service bureau can't
output ID and gets scared to output PDFs; our workaround has been to export
EPS files to place in Quark. PDFs have drawbacks from their perspective.
For PDF distilling from ID2 I've had the best luck with Export>PDF. The
PressReady setting works fine for me. Again, check with the service bureau.
Ask for the specifics of their preferred profile. Then you can File>PDF
Styles...>New to make a custom setting for their rip.
I've never had conflicts outputting or using OpenType fonts from any
app--they behave just like T1 fonts (except if you have ID2, in which case
they are significantly different!). Have others experienced problems?
