MadeForLayers integration into MadeToPrint

Integration in MadeToPrint

MadeToPrint has the capability to use layer views from MadeForLayers for printing and the export to various file formats (including PDF, EPS, various image file formats).

Example: Exporting all layer views into a single PDF/X-4 file

In this example a MadeToPrint job is created, and the layer views are exported to a PDF/X-4 file.

Under Printer you can select the destination file (PDF). The PDF default settings are opened by clicking the Setup... button. In this example, the default PDF/X-4:2008 is used since it supports PDF/X as well as layers.

Under Layers you will find two options that allow you to open the layer views from MadeForLayers. Two modes are listed at the bottom: Print default layer view and Print all layer views separately.

Selecting the first option applies the default view (which you may have defined yourself) to the PDF file. The second option causes all layer views that were created in the original document to be included in the export. Finally, the selection is saved.

In the start window of MadeToPrint, you can then select and use the new setting by pressing the Print button.

When running this MadeToPrint job, you will get – depending on how many layer views have been set up in the InDesign document – multiple PDF files.
