    I find the best way to remove crop marks is take the pdf into illustrator. If you have problems with the fonts, link the image instead of embedding it, then go to flatten transparency, then convert text to outlines............

    Pitstop or Illustrator

    I use Pitstop to do this. You can do it manually (click & delete) or use an action. If you don't have Pitstop save PDF as eps then open in Illustrator.

    It is one of the standard actions. Open the actions panel. You will see it under Standard / Page / Remove Printer Marks. I'm using PitStop Pro 10, may not be in older versions.

    Methods can be much, but why? If the printing marks set correctly - for bleeds, it can not hurt to print. If not correct - Pitstop, or the means of almost any Workflow. Printing marks generated acrobat lie generally on a separate layer. You can disable or delete the print attribute layer. Generally you do not bother.

    I used pitstop for removing marks but i noticed that in certain files, it was removing also graphic elements. On large documents it's annoying to verify all pages. So now for that operation i use Acrobat built-in remove printer marks. And no error so far.

    U can use Esko i-cut for editing. Much easier than editing in acrobat.

    Except for PDF saved from Illustrator with the defaut option "Keep editing fonctionnalities" (because these PDF files have a different structure than other PDF: they -of course- contain PDF datas, but they also contain the .AI native datas... and when opened in Illustrator, in fact Illustrator opens only ITS own native datas, ignoring the PDF datas)...

    ... using Illustrator to edit PDF is REALLY a VERY BAD idea, and a very bad advice!

    Many people think that PDF is the native format of Illustrator files and that opening PDF in Illustrator is a good solution without any problems, but both are mistakes... and these people often don't even imagine the problems they create in their PDF files by opening them with Illustrator: really, you should never do that, and never advice other people to do this mistake!

    ... except in emergency (but removing marks is not an emergency case!) or to pick-up a logo (or some objects) in a PDF and re-work these objects in Illustrator to re-create an .AI or EPS logo... and always with many care, cause Illustrator always makes some/many damages in the PDF!!!

    To remove printer's marks, there is a specific fonction in PitStop, that works good with automatic printers marks of Adobe's softwares.

    With manually added crop marks and sometimes with Quark's marks this fonction fails and other ways have to be used: you can select the marks with the object's selection tools of PitStop and simply erase them (but don't forget to also erase the white thick line under each black mark!), or (as already said) use the color 100-100-100-100 to detect and select the marks.


    I'm not a share holder in the Enfocus company, and I have no interest of any kind to make people buy PitStop, but PitStop is THE essential tool that everybody wanting to work with PDF must have!!!...

    ... mainly to NOT edit PDF in Illustrator!
