Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a proof, part of Designing a Restaurant Menu.
Okay, now that we have our menu folder and our menu insert both designed, it's…time to print a proof.…We need to see how these design elements are working together; especially how…this here is going to align with its counterpart on the interior.…We want to make sure that this line lines up with this line, and that generally…everything is good; that we can read this text,…that there is enough contrast, and it's big enough.…So we need to do this:…go to our Print dialog, and first of all, I'm going to go to choose the printer.…
Obviously your choices will differ from what I have here,…but now I am going to the Setup options.…I want to make sure that the paper size for the folder is 11 by 17.…I'm next going to go to Marks and Bleed.…If we're printing a proof that has bleeds, as our design does, on an 11 by 17 page,…it is going to require that it be scaled to fit, and we are going to need to trim…the result from the resulting printout.…
I'll now come to Marks and Bleeds; I want Document Bleed Settings turned on,…
