Checking color breaks in Acrobat 7
« on: April 09, 2007, 09:42:30 AM »
In Acrobat 7.0.9 / 10.4.8
Anyone having an issue with unreliability when preflighting PDFs for correct color breaks?

For instance, I check PDFs which have three colors/inks, but Acrobat only identifies 2.

Anyone else?

Hi Witcher,

What are the colours used in your job?
Is the PDF a Multi page or single page PDF?

How many colours do you see when goto Advanced>Output Preview

Marcus,
    Multipage PDF, 2 pantone colors, but an eps within the original (accidentally) has some Cyan within it.

I can see the cyan when I do an output preview.

It is actually picking up all three colours?
Didn't you say Acrobat only identifies 2, or was that using the preflight?

I never use the preflight option, I always use the Output Preview, turn off the colours I want to keep, then flick through every page untill something shows up. Hopefully I should only see blank pages.

Do you have Pitstop?
you can map the Cyan to the correct Pantone.

I also am assuming that the original images (EPS's??) have had the embed fontsa options ticked on????
