Use PDF presets

A PDF preset is a group of settings that affect the creation of a PDF. InDesign already has a few presets, but they don’t always fit a designer’s needs. If you find yourself needing to frequently change the PDF export setting (like adding Marks or Bleeds to the PDF), then you might want to create your own preset. From the PDF export window, you can easily create a customized preset. Edit the settings and then click on “Save Preset.” This simple tip might not save hours in a single use, but it’s going to be a consistent timesaving tip. Also, you’ll make sure you won’t forget to change any setting.
