Print Media, PDF Standards and Adobe InDesign
How can we edit PDF's in InDesign for print?
In print media, we all have them. PDF files. We export PDFs. We receive them in, in various ways and methods. And we have many PDFs in our archives. We tag PDFs. We print PDFs. And we even preflight PDFs, although that’s, of course, a post-flight. This is all relatively easy, even if a PDF/X or PDF Ghent Workgroup standard type PDF flavor. And it’s quite commonplace in print media.

What is more challenging is editing them. We, as graphic designers or prepress operators, generally prefer to use standard type of DTP, or desktop publishing, software. Software tools, such as Adobe’s own InDesign.
Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to edit a PDF, right in InDesign? No, not placed. Not a PDF that’s placed in InDesign. Anyone can do that. I mean editing the full PDF, with layers, fonts, tables, you name it. Sure, there are technical tools in Acrobat, which will allow you to, well, hack PDFs. These are both difficult to use and expensive, for the average user.
So, wouldn’t it be nice to be able to edit PDFs in InDesign? Of course, it would. And Markzware has PDF2DTP for InDesign to help you with that goal. Based on the 20-year-old Markzware technology, patented at that, it comes down to a one-click process, based on our expertise, for you, the user.
It's that easy to edit PDF files, right within Adobe InDesign. There. I’m done. This high-resolution, professional PDF file for print, a PDF document, is now a fully-editable InDesign layout, with colors, fonts, images, and even will create a separate folder with all the images exported that were embedded or used in that PDF file.
We're talking about a conversion with everything. All the styles, H&Js, even tables, colors, you name it. It doesn't matter where the PDF originated from, whether it was originally an InDesign file itself, or QuarkXPress, or even if it was an Apple Pages or CorelDRAW file that was created to a PDF. You can then take that PDF and get it right into InDesign, with all design elements, layers, conditions that you expect as professional graphic designers and prepress operators, available.
