  2.  "Simulate overprinting" should only be checked for sending output directly to color laser printers or inkjet printers.
  3. "Add marks" are left off in most cases. 
  4. "Page range – Start page / End page": this parameter is enabled for multiple page PDFs. It is possible to create EPS files for only some of the pages in the PDF.
