Design Review allows PDFs to be printed at a specific scale (such as 50%). I recieve the following message when opening some PDFs:
"This PDF contains items that may not display properly in Design Review."
This could be problematic if items are dropped from prints that are made. Is there any way to tell?
Has anyone else encountered, and solved, the issue?
Design Review has some particularly useful tools for use with .pdf files.
This error is thrown often with Design Review, and generally means nothing. There are occasions where text is completely garbled. I can't quite pin down why, though I have a feeling it is related to Ghostscript used by some .pdf creators.
There are some legacy issues attached to Design Review when printing to .pdf, some have disappeared, yet it is good to have warning in case they rear their ugly head.
Note: You can open a .pdf as 'vector' information in Design Review check Here for details. Note: a .pdf opened in vanilla Design Review appears tho be vector based, it will however rasterize (turn into a pixellated image) upon saving. Also snaps aren't available until you tweak as described in the link.
You may want to look at some of the other free .pdf viewers/writers which have scaling options. Adobe Reader 11 has a scale function when printing (finally) with your preferred .pdf printer.
