PDF eXpress Paper Validation

1. If you would like to create your own PDF file, please change the setting on your PDF distiller to insure your paper meets IEEE PDF specifications. Basic PDF distiller settings are as follows:
  • Optimized
  • Acrobat 5.0 compatibility
  • All graphics at least 300 dpi resolution (higher if preferred)
  • All fonts must be embedded and subset
  • Postscript settings do not override distiller settings
  • Page size is 612.0 x 792.0 points (8.5" x 11")
Important: Authors must check their final PDF files before submission to verify that all fonts have been properly embedded and subset. Some font manufacturers now flag their fonts to not embed. These fonts must be avoided.

2. If you would like to submit your source file to PDF eXpress® for conversion and validation, the process converts the following file types to PDF:
  • Postscript
  • Microsoft Word
  • Freelance
  • PageMaker
  • FrameMaker
  • Word Pro
  • WordPerfect
  • QuarkXpress*
  • Rich Text Format
  • (La)TeX (DVI and all support files required)*
* For documents created in formats that do not embed source files, include all support files with the final manuscript in a compressed archive for submission. If it is possible to embed images in the source document, you should do so to avoid potential issues, such as missing graphics.
