  • CIDInit on DPM?

    Our shop recently upgraded from Mac OS 9.2 (using mostly QuarkXpress 5 for jobs) to Mac OS X (using mostly InDesign 2). Previously, when I sent a print job for separations to our ABDick DPM9810 for ripping, it would show the name of the job and color info; for example, two plates might be "BCSmithBros (K)" and "BCSmithBros (PMS 285)." That was from Quark. NOW, from Indesign, every job is titled "CIDInit" followed by the color info. Is this a print driver problem or an InDesign problem or a OS problem? How/where can I change the setting or whatever to get the file names instead of the generic "CIDInit"?? Thanks in advance.

    I've saved more from having a company take care of the printing. Ink/toner alone can cost quite a bit....
