Hi all,

I have a number of marketing users who, at the moment, must turn on "Simulate Overprint" on every single document. Additionally, after the output preview box is closed, the view reverts back and layers are dropped off.

Is there any way to turn "Simulate Overprint" automatically On and keep it that way? Users are all on Windows 10.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Renato

Output Preview is a separate specialist function, not a switch. You can’t make Acrobat work in Output Preview mode except when the function was opened and has not been closed.

Open the Output Preview dialog in Adobe Acrobat Pro in order to view all available visual preview options. To get there, click on the “Tools” tab, then scroll down to “Protect & Standardize,” then finally click on “Print Production.” In the right-hand pane, click “Output Preview.”

Thanks Ebony,

But users know how to turn it on, the issue here is having that automatically turned on.

As it is, they have to do it every single time, and it's just becoming quite taxing on them.

Cheers
