That might still be a possibility - just distill it with all images and fonts embedded and NO compression whatsoever. IIRC, placing the Quark pdf in InDesign (with pdfs embedded/linked within the Quark pdf) causes unreported font errors; you'll have an ad that looks great in Quark and on screen, but exports from InDesign as Courier.The way I see it, you've got two options. Take the entire final exported Quark pdf and rasterize the whole thing in Photoshop, or, take the embedded/linked pdfs within the Quark file and rasterize those in Photoshop and relink them inside Quark and then export a new Quark pdf with the new links. If spot colors or 100% K is involved, you may have extra work, as 100% K might become a rich black on rasterization and ink saturation might be over 270%, which in my day was a no-no.If you're super lucky, you might be able to use Pitstop to correct any Quark pdf font embedding issues, and if you have the original links, you can remap them in Acrobat as well (right-click on the image in Acrobat, open in Illy/Photoshop, then close the Illy/Photoshop file - it will resave the image within the pdf)... but also IIRC, Prinergy likes Pitsop, but is not too font of Acrobat corrections.
