The PDF import filter lets you place any single page from an Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) file into an Adobe PageMaker 6.52 or later publication. Using the PDF import filter, you can reuse existing PDF documents in imaginative and meaningful ways. For example, you can select an individual page from a catalog saved as PDF and place it into an ad or brochure you're creating in PageMaker, thereby streamlining workflow and saving time. In addition, the PDF Import filter lets you control the resolution of the on-screen preview for faster performance, yet provides reliable, high-quality output to PostScript devices.
The placed PDF is similar to a placed EPS graphic in PageMaker in the following ways: the PDF appears in the PageMaker publication as an on-screen preview, using the preferences from the filter preferences dialog box; you cannot edit objects in the PDF; the PDF always prints at high resolution when printed to a PostScript device, but prints at the resolution of your screen preview when printed to a non-PostScript device. Adobe does not recommend using PDFs for graphics or text if outputting to non-PostScript devices where high resolution is needed.
