I'm trying to simply send some presets and .joboptions to a coworker and the custom preset I created (a while back) is not showing up in the ~Library>Application Support>Adobe>Settings. I have 2 custom PDF preset .joboption files showing, but not the 3rd one I'm looking for. It should say "DPI - 11x17 crops & bleeds", but I'm only getting the iGen versions (a different printer).

 

Am I completely missing something or has something changed recently? I just need the missing "DPI - 11x17 crops & bleeds.joboptions" file! I have this preset loaded in InDesign already, so it's there, but it seem to be missing in my ~Library>Application Support>Adobe>Settings.

 

Help please!?!

What about exporting the joboptions from the PDF Exports preset window (see Save As) ?
