This activity shows how to configure a refine process template to preserve PDF 1.4+ features such as transparency and focusses on the implications of preserving transparency with respect to trapping.

What you'll learn

You will learn how to configure a refine process template to preserve PDF 1.4+ features and how not flattening affects the traps within the Refined PDF Master file.

What you'll need

In the location to which you extracted the activity files, find the Activity 38 folder and this file: Annual Report.pdf

What you'll do

  • Submit a file containing transparency to two process templates, both of which are set to trap. One process template will flatten (that is, will remove
    transparency) and one will not flatten (that is, will preserve transparency).

  • View the resulting trapped PDF Master files in Acrobat.
