Sometimes it is better not to presuppose the right tool for the job.
I think you may want to step back from this and look at it from the
viewpoint of the end goal (and I don't know what that is.)
Are you trying to:
- Print with features not in the standard Acro print dialog?
- Place a graphic in a preexisting Quark doc?
- Modify a preexisting PDF doc for which there is no source in some way?
For each of the above business problems, there are better solutions than
Quark imports (although the solutions are specific to each problem.)
Remember that PDF is intended as a *final* PostScript-like format, and
imports-interpretations in programs like Quark were never really intended
for PDF when Adobe conceived it.
Problem 1 (identified above:)
- If you need to print with capabilities not in Acrobat 3 (I'm assuming to
PostScript), CrackerJack from LantanaRIPs is an acro-tool with an extensive
PostScript export feature, comparable to the output options available in
Even/Odd page printing is also something that can be accomplished with
imposition tools, but that may be overkill.
Quark has temporarily removed it, but will likely post it again soon - the
PDF Filter. http://www.quark.com/files/xtquarkxts_40.html
Illustrator and Photoshop can open PDF files. Illustrator will even let
you save back into the multi-page stream with minimal disruption. EnFocus
has an Acrobat plug-in called PitStop 4.0 that gives you massive
editability right in Acrobat 4.0.
Eat the hand that feeds you.
