    Pantone issue in QRK 6 and 7

    Re: Pantone issue in QRK 6 and 7 +"Well, however you do it, whether you soft-proof with your press profile while editing, or have just made your printing condition try to imitate SWOP separation on #1 paper and don't soft-proof while editing, or match dot gain of old film-to-plate workflow...

    Pantone issue in QRK 6 and 7

    Re: Pantone issue in QRK 6 and 7 Well, I still get completely lost, but I'll have to tackle it when I can finally handle CM. I'll be screaming for help. I am lucky in that I am not prepress/printer and have the time to edit and convert all photos within Photoshop. They're always CMYK before...

    Pantone issue in QRK 6 and 7

    Re: Pantone issue in QRK 6 and 7 Hi Don, Yes, I remember reading something similar before, probably in the prepress newsgroup, or maybe color science. Can things practically become standardized with Pantone internationally? IOW, would an international standard actually used internationally? I...

    Pantone issue in QRK 6 and 7

    Re: Pantone issue in QRK 6 and 7 A postscript to my post; I rename my color bridge palettes adding month/year like 1007. I prefer appending and selecting colors over using built in palettes; again, for consistency. The better option for all of this might be Pantone to Hexachrome, but who's...

    Pantone issue in QRK 6 and 7

    Re: Pantone issue in QRK 6 and 7 Yes, I am a designer and, yes, these things should be addressed on the designer's end. I feel for you. I can't run your version test, but I believe you. That's why I said I NEVER let my applications do my conversion from spot to process. Scenario: if I...

    Pantone issue in QRK 6 and 7

    Re: Pantone issue in QRK 6 and 7 macdudeken, I don't normally use Quark's native Pantone colors, I append Colors by selecting from Pantone's color bridge palette for Quark. I do the same in Illustrator and Photoshop to keep my colors consistent. We all know that "accuracy" is a flexible terms...

    Printing gradients with 2 Pantone colors

    Re: Printing gradients with 2 Pantone colors Don, Wouldn't Illustrator do the trick as well; perhaps easier if you want shaped objects? Can one *safely* add noise to gradient spot channels in Photoshop? Now that might be a plus. inez

    Quark 4.1 & underlines

    Re: Quark 4.1 & underlines Wonder if there's something strange about the originator's 4.11 preferences? Styles maybe? Does a thumbnail drag to a new doc help? All I can offer is that you send me a one page file from the doc that contains the problem. I'm on Mac OS 9.2.2 running QXP 4.11. Maybe...

    Quark 4.1 & underlines

    Re: Quark 4.1 & underlines I still work in the stone age too, but haven't encountered this problem; probably because I rarely use styles. All I can do is throw out questions, hoping to help you find the cause. 1) Any differences in the problem instances with kerning, tracking or scaling? 2)...

    turn reader spread into single pages

    Re: turn reader spread into single pages It certainly sounds like and imposition issue on the printer end, but very odd. Whether it's bleed, creep, or (seems inappropriate) 4-up signatures; you'd think that they'd want one 80 single page document to start with to assure correct page order...

    Help with Quark

    Re: Help with Quark I'm in much the same fix that some of your clients are in. I'm limping along on 350MHz G4-Yikes. Nothing $5,000 wouldn't cure, ha! Fortunately I was able to fix my old PowerLook III scanner with a $35 part;) inez

    Help with Quark

    Re: Help with Quark I can't join the InDesign vs Quark battle because I'm trapped in the 20th century of equipment and apps. I work in OS 9.2.2 with QXP 4.11, AI 9.0.3, PS 6.0.2 and Distiller 4. For my use I can never import client ad files directly anyway, so if I get a PDF it gets rebuilt...
