    Virtually on every single occassion where I can check the sources of Apple handiwork it has been not done with Apple software.


    The plague of talking to many Apple Store staff is that aside from iOS apps they mostly don't use Apple products either.


    When they showcase Apple software too often it is all theory, not practice. That ends up in way the software and the OS work/don't work.

    For what it's worth, the Apple country manager for Denmark, who is Danish, previously worked as the Adobe world wide evangelist in the period 1998-2004. Similarly, EAC Graphics, a wholly owned and operated division of Østasiatisk Kompagni, was the world wide distributor for Heidelberger Druckmaschinen until 1994 in the Americas and until 1998 in Africa, Asia and Eurasia including Denmark - it was a Danish sales organisation that sold Adobe and Linotype fonts into the Danish market. Again, similarly, Kommunedata A/S, Danish Standards, the Danish National Language Council, and the Ministry of Culture and Nordic Co-operation blocked the universal character set for three years over the issue of encoding language in the character set, to the frustration of the Unicode people. It is widely believed, not least by Danes, that Denmark is at the cutting edge of digitalisation. Any study in the sociology of the information sciences will soon conclude that Danes, including Danes with university education, are no different from German, Frenchmen, Italians or indeed Americans in having not the slightest clue about computerised telecommunications ... -:)

    For the future seekers of the higher res PDF... What barely sufficed for my needs was the 300DPI PDF (vs. the typical 72 DPS pages wants to pass off).


    What you want to do is PRINT to PDF.




    To do this, go to file>print then change your paper quality to "Best" or some comparable setting.
    Hit the PDF button in the bottom and save as PDF instead.  This will produce a high[er] resolution image.




    Hope this helps... CHEERS!

    That doesn't help where there is any transparency in the document.


    Any shadows, reflections, 3D objects, transparent bitmaps, fancy frames etc will be rendered as 72dpi.
