NOTE in Illlustrator, Edit, PDF presets - 2 files show that have version 1.3 but they don't show in the setting folder so I can't remove them... [PDF/X-1a:2001] & [PDF/X-3:2002] Any idea where they live "spotlight" found similar in Indesign application folder but didn't help moving them. Screen grabs attached in a pdf
