Ghostscript was launched as an open source software technology and has evolved over In addition to interpreter/rasterizer capabilities, Ghostscript offers full. Ghostscript (gs) worked better than pdf2ps and convert for me. Quality was hardly degraded and file size is small. gs -dSAFER -dBATCH. I have now found that the rasterizer of ghostscript simply did not work for me, maybe because of font issues. And convert, another solution.

Only allowed values now are 1,9,11, Please refer to the PostScript Language Reference, third edition, for details. In Adobe Acrobat, viewing of the effects of overprinting is enabled by the ‘Overprint Preview’ item in the ‘Advanced’ menu.
