  • Overprint Preview

    Since going to Acrobat 8, and InDesign CS3, my PDFs are viewing "washed out" when Overprint Preview is selected. Documents are postscripted out of InDesign CS3, and Distilled using a printer's settings I've always used. If I go back and Postscript a file from InDesign CS2 and view it in Acrobat 8, it still looks washed out. This wasn't happening with Acrobat 7 and ID CS2.
    Our printer says it will print ok, but I want to know why this is happening.

    I had a similar issue and it was related to the fact that Acrobat 8 wasn't using the profile it was supposed to by not being able to read the "output condition identifier" embedded in the PDF. That situation wasn't happening in Acrobat 7. I got it fixed by embedding the appropriate profile in my distiller options.
    Better train people and risk they leave - than do nothing and risk they stay.

      Sounds like your color settings are different in Acrobat 8 than they were in Acrobat 7.

        Hazel,

        when you open Output Preview, what is the simulation profile Acrobat is using? If it is "wrong" and you change it to the output intention of the PDF you created, does it look correct?
