Why isn't my distortion applied when exporting to Normalized PDF?

When I Export to PDF for PRESS, distortion is applied and it looks as expected.


Since ArtPro 10.0.2, distortion is stored differently in a Normalized PDF. The distortion will only be visible on FlexRip and Imaging Engine, which reads the distortion information out of the Normalized PDF XMP section. Export to PDF for PRESS will apply this distortion immediately.

The reason for this change is that earlier, distortion was applied twice when being sent to FlexRip/Imaging Engine: Once during the creation of the Normalized PDF and again during the ripping phase.
