Go to Tools -> Print Production.

The Print Production\Prepress tools are displayed in the right hand pane.

Refer Acrobat Help | Print production tools overview (Acrobat Pro DC)  for more details.

Priyanka

I believe the Print Production tools only exist in Acrobat Pro. Check that first. If you have Acrobat Pro, sometimes you have to search within tools for output preview or convert colors and then you can add it to your toolbar.

Yes, this is why I asked about the version (Pro vs Standard).

I had the same issue.  The shortcut for that tool needs to be added.

Edit -> Manage Tools.  You will see a page full of the icons for the various tools.  Find the "Print Production" icon under "Protection & Standardize".  Select "Add Shortcut" in the dropdown list below the icon.  It will now appear in the toolbar on the right.

For the new DC version, click on tools next to home, go to protect and standardize , then add print production. On the right side of the page (on mine anyway) you will see preflight (second in list)
