    Reply to The Grand Old Question: What DPI to use?
    B
    My anal retentiveness is showing, but as already mentioned what you're referring to IS NOT dpi. The proper term for what you're describing is pixels per inch (PPI), not dots per inch (DPI). They're very...

    On a normal book, you would be charged by press run....A book on demand is different.

    I'm new to this pre press stuff.
    can anyone tell me why when doing pre-flight check on quark doc I get this red alert message
    *An incorrect number of printing inks will result in the output of extra plates when printing separations. This item compares the number and type of colors the document will output to the colors specified in the Job Jacket Output Instructions for the document. Unneeded spot colors should be converted to process. To do this, select each spot color in the Color dialog, click the Edit button, and check the "Process Separation" (QuarkXPress 3.3) or "Spot Color" (QuarkXPress 4) checkbox.*
    my colours are cmyk process with the spot box unchecked and the and in the colours dialog box it says there are no spot colours only process ones. How do I sort this colour alert please.

    Somewhere in your document you have additional colors formatted.

    This could be a forgotten extra space or a hidden image that is behind something. It could be a linked item that is not cmyk or has elements that are not cmyk in it.

    My advice is to print out all seps with document information printed to tell you what you are getting on each separation.

    Then you can focus on the colors that print that should not be there and correct the document.
