Sample PDF files

If your production PDF files are large (for example, over 1000 pages in length), you should mark up a smaller sample PDF file that represents the PDF files you process in RICOH ProcessDirector.

You only need to mark up one sample PDF file, save all your changes to control files, and then use RICOH ProcessDirector to apply those changes to all of your production PDF files that match the sample PDF file. If you use RICOH ProcessDirector to process several PDF files that have different formats or different document properties, you need to mark up a sample PDF file for each type of file that you print using RICOH ProcessDirector. When working with RICOH ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat, the goal is to mark up a PDF file that represents your production PDF files but that is smaller than your production files. If you mark up a PDF file in RICOH ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat that is under 1,000 pages, you can work more quickly when adding markup and when using preview and viewing extracted document properties.

Both your sample PDF file and PDF files processed by RICOH ProcessDirector must contain all fonts and images in the PDF file itself. If you have PDF files with varying page sizes, markup may not appear as you expect. The placement reference for all markup, document properties, and page group definitions is the top left corner of each page.
