This lesson explains how to set up custom Output Intents which can be used e.g. for PDF/X conversion.
The drop down list shows lot of printing conditions, but the needed one is not listed.
The drop down list in the "Edit Profile" displays the same list as the Switchboard action - again the needed printing condition is not listed.
The "Preferences" dialog can be opened via the main menu in the Standalone version or the pdfToolbox Plug-In menu in Acrobat.
In "pdfToolbox Preferences" window go to the "Output Intents" pane which shows all available Output Intents.
Click on the "New" button (icon with plus sign in the lower left of the window) to create a new Output Intent.
Fill in the name of the Output Intent (here we use "PSR LWC plus v2 (ECI)"), and click on "Choose..." to locate the needed ICC destination profile.
Locate and select the ICC profile on the computer and click "Open" to import it into the newly created Output Intent.
Select the appropriate value for the "Output Condition Identifier" field (if not sure what to select, use "Custom").
For predefined "Output Condition Identifier" values, the remaining entries will be filled automatically. The new Output Intent is now completely defined and ready to be used. Click OK to save the new Output Intent and close the dialog.
The newly created Output Intent is now included in the list of printing conditions in the drop down list of the "PDF/X-1a" Switchboard action.
The newly created Output Intent is now included in the list of printing conditions in the "Convert to PDF/X, PDF/A or PDF/E" profile section.
