  • Global Change Specific Color

    Using the Global Change to change a specific color on a PDF, it is just text and I am trying to change a spot color to just black. I have used this many time but now it doesn't work. Any ideas? Oh and I am using Pitstop 12 update 3.

    How do you choose the Color?

    from the list of document colors or the fill of an active object?

    Did you save, close and open again the PDF already after the changing?

    Try mapping (use the search by building an action...), if you need fast succes.

      I used the grab color option. I have also tried the re-map color option.

        Hi Bob,

        Would you be willing to post the PDF here and provide the color details? I'd like to give it a try.

        Thanks,

          It is the red text. It's cmyk value is 100M and 40K. The color is listed as laser.
          Thanks

              I was able to easily convert the text from LASER to Black. The barcodes didn't seem to want to change with Pitstop.

                That tells me that there is something wrong with our Pitstop. Thank you for taking the time to look into this matter.

                  Does anyone have a reason the the Change specific color under Global changes has stopped working?

                    Another option to consider...if you are printing these on a digital press with a Fiery controller, you can create a custom spot color in Command Workstation with the same name, and modify the output color to be 100% K.

                      The product will be printed on a conventional printing press but the red text will be applied by inkjet. Thanks anyway.

                        Is it set to do the global change on the current page or the whole document? The only time I've seen this happen is if I have it set to a page range that doesn't exist in the current document.
