  • Trapping in InDesign

    Hi all,

    I'm trying to make the big jump from Quark to InDesign, but I'm having trouble figuring out how to trap in InDesign. From what I've read, InDesign traps by reading the ink characteristics, which is different to how Quark works. You use the trap presets in InDesign to set the "rules" you want to trap with, and InDesign applies those rules to the entire page, which is different to Quark, where you have to manually trap each object on the page.

    Can anyone tell me if I'm on the right track here?

    And can anyone tell me what settings I should put on to my trap preset? And how does the Ink Manager menu affect all this?

    Thanks!!

    There isn't much out there because the industry is so new (digital, celluloid has been around for about 100 years). I'm a Motionographer and the industry is really a cross between Filmmakers, Graphic...

    OK I've concluded that the best way to do it is how I'm doing it already. Manually entering in. I have PDF software that I thought might be able to generate it and seeing that there are some Scripts...
