I am having one bear of a time with Word and illustrations within a PDF document. I'm trying to publish a book. The publisher only accepts PDF files. I have produced the book in Word, and imported PDF illustrations throughout the book (like 220 of them!). I have double and triple checked and the illustrations are all at 300 dpi. However, when I import those illustrations into my Word document, and then go to print-PDF-save the illustrations get converted into a range of dpi sizes - from 24 dpi to 284 dpi. Even though I am importing them as 300 dpi, they wind up as this range of dpi sizes. Because Word is so darn user friendly, there is no way to find out what is happening nor how to correct it. Has anyone else run into this, and if so, do you know how to fix it? Word is the only document-producing solution on my iMac. Thanks!!!
