...Illustrator PDF's via PDF Services hint
Authored by: RZambrana on Mar 22, '03 05:24:26PM
All due respect, but Adobe also claimed Dimensions 3.0 was the industry standard for 3-D. Can't take everything they say as gospel.

For the record, I probably should have included this in my post...
I have used this method successfully for 5 ads that went to press with NO issues. This method WILL NOT work for Multi-page PDFs. This IS NOT A PREFERRED METHOD only a workaround, and if you're working with Illustrator 10, Illustrator 10 DOES use true PDF, as you have to select an option to NOT use PDF as clip format in Illustrator and will not retain Illustrator formatting if deselect it in the save options list, but still, it IS NOT the best answer, just a workaround from a print production standpoint.

After having used PStill by Stone Studios for a few days now, its definitely a better answer to the Distiller dillema in X, and would frankly beat Distiller hands down if it could import existing Distiller .joboption files...

If I misled or misinformed anybody as to the limited usefulness of the Illustrator workaround, I sincerely apologize.
