How to Convert an
Unprintable PDF to InDesign CS6
for Print: PDF2DTP

Markzware shares how to convert an unprintable PDF to InDesign CS6 for print, using PDF2DTP:

WWF (.wwf) is a “green” file format based on PDF and is not printable. This format is intended to help prevent the waste of paper, ink, and other print resources. To save a file in this format, a user would go to File > Print, then Save As WWF.

A WWF file opens in the WWF reader, so you might be able to view it on your device, but it won’t open in Preview. If you go to File > Print, Acrobat asks for a password, which prevents you from outputting or otherwise using the file. (Note: Markzware’s FlightCheck can read WWF files and report on fonts, used images, and more.)

Although based on a PDF file, a .wwf file is not PDF/X compliant and is considered unprintable, which can cause issues in print workflows. You should be able to access and print your own content! If a file format prevents you from doing so, the value of its content can be limited or lost.

Need to print a WWF / PDF file for your physical archive or to edit PDF content, so you can maximize its use? Incredibly, with Markzware‘s PDF2DTP, you can convert WWF files, as well as PDF and Illustrator files, to InDesign. The PDF2DTP for InDesign CS6 plugin will convert the .wwf file format into a fully-formatted, editable, printable Adobe InDesign CS6 (INDD) file. You can then make changes to the content, for publishing or printing.

Markzware develops conversion tools and solutions to benefit businesses that handle digital, inkjet, label, package, wide-format, and other print workflows. Markzware‘s PDF2DTP is data conversion software that can convert PDF to InDesign CS6 and other InDesign versions. Learn more, by watching this video demonstration of PDF2DTP:
