SVG FILES TO PDF


You will have to open SVG files, one at a time and resave as PDF format as the next step towards completing the process. In the PDF module upon saving, make sure you have the following settings checked and ticked:

  • Convert Text to Paths
  • Rasterise filter effects
  • Resolution for Rasterization (300dpi)

Saddle Stitched and Perfect Bound publications have different requirements for the Cover Artwork PDF files and how they are saved and supplied. Ensure you have read this information before proceeding here, so you understand what you need to do.

This information is in the Templates section under:

  • Instructions for Perfect Bound Publications

When you are ready, commence with the saving of your PDF files.
