  • Acrobat 8 Pro - Preflight

    Hi Forum,

    Having some strange issues when preflighting PDFX files in Acrobat 8 pro, basically i have an additional check that verifies if keylines are below 0.25pt, when this check is run it errors on keylines that are 0.6pt ! and registration marks set at 0.25pt !...which is obviously wrong.

    Now i can lower the keyline check limit to 0.24pt to get around the registration issues, but i what about the incorrect error as reported below:

    Page 12: stroked 0.6pt CMYK (0.0/0.0/0.0/0.992) overprint on

    When i run the same check in Acrobat Pro 7, it passes ok...

    Can anyone help ?

    Thank you,

    Nick.

    Hi Nick,
    I only use preflight reports as a general guide. Whatever it flags as wrong, I review it and decide myself whether the file is fine or not.

    One major flaw I see with all the talks about automatic work flow is, assuming software/hardware are error-free or at least better than human.

      Hi Happy Friday,

      Thanks for your reply, yes of course human intervention is always needed to decipher any technical issue, however, i would like to know why Acrobat 8 pro is behaving this way....

      Nick.

        Nick,

        can you please provide me with your preflight profile and the PDF in question.

        Please also tell me which version of Preflight you are using - "Show detailed view...." option - open "Preflight Information" triangle - read preflight version


        Regards,

        Peter

          What happens if you try these two separate tests:

          1. Page 12: stroked 0.6pt CMYK (0.0/0.0/0.0/1.0) overprint on?

          2. Page 12: stroked 0.6pt CMYK (0.0/0.0/0.0/0.992) overprint off?
