Hi loner93306019,

don't be confused: When you select the preset named [PDF/X-4:2008] the default setting of "Standard" is PDF/X-4:2010.

From my German InDesign 2020 version 15.1.0.25:

If standard PDF/X-4:2010 is not showing up, your color management settings of InDesign are turned off. Just I did before doing the screenshot below. Then standard turned to value "None":

So check your color management settings and turn them on!

If done the standards PDF/X-4:2010, PDF/X-3:2003 and PDF/X-3:

2008 is the only one available on Adobe software. 2010 only has minor differences that in 99% of the cases make no difference. I even believe that those are present in what InDesign still calls 2008 (as memory serves me well 2010 support was added already in CS 5 or 6). You can use Layers in Adobes 2008 version.
