   Subject: exporting to PDF with it set to PDF/X-3
Re: PDF/X-3 option does not appear in the 'save as PDF' file options  
compatability drop down list

I am producing a magazine and understand that the PDF/X-3 format is the best  
one for commercial printers which I will be using.

I am using 1.3.9. on windows vista home premium.

I installed the Adobe ICC profiles and directed scribus to the  
windows/system32/spool/drivers/color file in the preferences>general screen.  
I then enabled colour management, but left the settings that where all ready  
in all of the tabs. But when I export to PDF I can not even see the option to  
choose the PDF/X-3 format. I can only see PDF 1.3 / 1.4 and 1.5.

Please help.

Much appreciated.

Kind regards
