PDF eXpress Online File Conversion/PDF Validation Tool

A) 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 MUST be changed to:

  • 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.
