  • Having a Brain-dead day - help!

    I have a pdf supplied by customer to which I have added two logos. Pdf was supplied as spot colour but we now need to print in CMYK. Have added logos in Illustrator. . . then dropped file into Indesign to send to press. (Do this all the time!) The spot colour is coming down as the 'wrong' CMYK split and the black is also coming down as CMYK instead of black. I have reopened the file and changed the 'spot' to the 'right mix' and the black to black & resaved. But it keeps changing back to the wrong mix and CMYK black. I must be doing something obvious wrong. . .but I can't see it.

    What is your colour profile set to in Illy?
    Is the spot colour still present in your toolbar in Illy or Indesign?

        Spot colour is not there in either Illy or Indesign... I've changed the spot colour to CMYK.

        No - I don't have Pitstop. . .

          When you export out of InDesign, go to Output and then choose "Convert to Destination Preserve Numbers"

          See if that helps.

            Thanks - Audentia - brilliant! I have reset my colour profiles in both and it seems to have solved the problem. I am sure that they matched before but who knows!!

                Strangely the business card pdf separated perfectly through Illustrator/Indesign before I changed the profiles.

                  I have a pretty good idea you are going to have troubles with that file trying to go that far back. Everything from formatting to color.
                  Just sayin.....

                  That's where I've actually got stuck - to find someone with CS4. Nobody is seen around. Most are using CC, at least CS6 or 5. The original idml was created in CS6. So, I guess it should be downsaved in...
