Same issue here.
I went so far as to remove my custom filters and re-create them. No luck. Still not showing up in the File->Export Quartz Filter list.
This is a significant issue as I use these filters as part of my daily workflow. Any suggestions?

I am having the same problem...why would they change something like this that we all use???
If you have the answer...let us know.

The solution I realized involves the following:
- Right click the PDF file you desire to work with and then select "Open with..."
- Select the "Colorsync Utility" application
- The Colorsync Utility will open up with your PDF file
- At the bottom of Colorsync Utility status bar, you can select the quartz filter you wish to apply (including any custom ones you made)
- Press "Apply"
- Save the document
I hope this workaround can hold up for now. I do admit I miss the ability to see and use my quartz filters right out of preview.

Nice find. I wasn't aware that ColorSync could open files. Learn something new every day.
This certainly works and is a step forward. Thanks for sharing.
Hopefully Apple will get around to fixing this obvious bug in Preview so we can reduce the number of steps.

Brilliant - saved me hours of searching around for an answer!

Just copy your filter from
to /Library/PDF Services/
and the customized profile will be back in preview.

Thanks for this suggestion, but I cannot find the "Library" folder in /Users/YourName/. I only see a Library folder in Macintosh HD.
As for the other work-arounds, I really appreciate it. The only issue I have with that, is it erases all existing bookmarks every time I compress a file directly in ColorSync.

This folder is hidden in OS X Lion. Press "Shift+Command+G" and type in "/Users/YOURNAME/Library/" in the path to be directed to the Library folder.
Best of luck.

Thanks. Works great.
Now I need to figure out how to get a PDF to open in Single Page view as well as Bookmarks showing in Preview on Lion on every computer by default. Preview seems to bypass my PDF setting.
I can't find a way around this. Snow Leopard Preview seems to abide by the setting the PDF was made with.

thanks for that one, but with my settings, I have no file change, only if I use the built in reduce file size.

Ok, got it now.
Needed to generate new filters (Kopy the normal Reduce File size and changed it)
Then I had to transfer them like midnightmac said.
And then it works. I reduced 11,5 MB to 2,7 MB with still accaptable results.

Thanks again! There's always someone with the same problem and someone else smart enough to fix it!
