How to show overprinting in PDF Source Files in Vault PromoMats and Medical?
Flattening files before uploading them into Vault can avoid potential issues as flattening removes transparency information and converts images and text to a format that Vault can interpret and render.
At times, when a user attempts to flatten a document, the Print Preview window may not display any images or text, and Vault does not render the PDF Source File properly:
To solve this, users can enable the Simulate Overprinting option as follows:
- Open the PDF Source File in Acrobat
- Select File > Print
- Select Microsoft Print To PDF as the printer
- Open Advanced options.
- In the Output section, select Simulate Overprinting, and click OK.
- Print and save as a PDF copy to replace the Viewable Rendition in Vault.
