The Custom category (Figure 18) is a catch-all, presenting a scrollable list of checks that you can select and add to your profile. It’s an interesting list, so you should spend some time perusing it. When you find a check you want to add to the profile, do the following (order is important here):

Figure 18 The Custom pane is a catch-all for otherwise uncategorized checks. Look ‘em over; there’s some useful stuff here.

  1. Select the check in the right-hand list. Acrobat displays a description, hanging beneath the list item, of what that check does (Figure 19).

Figure 19 Acrobat provides a useful summary of a check’s purpose when you select it in the Custom pane.

  1. Select a reporting level in the drop-down menu, as in Figure 18.
  2. Click on the little “plus” button next to the drop down menu (not the Plus button beneath the right-hand list of available checks).

There are a whole heap o’ checks available here, and they’re well explained by the help text that appears when you select them. You should look these over in detail and select what appeals to you.

For my eBook profile, I selected only the check that detects if a font uses an artificial bold face (which looks unbelievably ugly).
