export vw-drawing to pagemaker or quark

Recommended Posts

What is the best way to export a VW 8.5. (Windows)architectural drawing so it can be used in Quark or Pagemaker. I used the eps-export, but all the imported pict, jpc or tif-files were gone. Using the pict-export does not give me a reasonable result (low resolution).

Hi J?rn,

Yes you can! Use the command ?Export Image File? in the export dialogue box (VW 8.5). A real choice dialogue box will open. You have a choice of File Formats and resolution settings. Calculate the size of your final output file e.g. A4 and this final image probably does not need more than 150dpi resolution for printing. By the way one pixel or one point = 0.35 mm - I think.

When you choose a high resolution setting VW needs all the memory it can get.

The other alternative would be to create a PDF file which is also excellent for file transfer into PageMaker.

When you have any problems, then just ask more questions here.
