  • Unsupported color space in Acrobat

    Does anyone have a work around for this error msg in Acrobat - Could not complete your request because a color was specified using an unsupported color space?

    I was sent a pdf that I need to separate as 2 colors, K & 201. When I print the seps I'm getting a 4 color process. There's an imbedded PS image that when I try to edit from the pdf I get the above error message.
    I have a feeling something very, very simple is eluding me.

    Make a copy of the file first

    In Object Editing - go to properties>colour> and convert the profile to something that is supported.

    Open it in Photoshop and make it a two colour the way you need it.

      You can also do a Preflight Report on the colour spaces used - to find out what profile that image on that page is using.

      I'd also make sure both Acrobat and Photoshop are up to date.

          As far as I can see you can only sort your own boards. There is no way to sort or save boards you follow.
