    I regularly use preflight to convert RGB and CMYK colors to Pantone Spot. Today I went to Preflight, create new fixup, convert to spot, and import color from regular libraries. Not there. Nothing. Totally blank box. Where did they all go? Adobe was no help. 3 hours of no help. Did they switch...

    Konica Minolta c6000 print speeds

    Does anyone know the actual print speed of the c6000 on 12x18 216 GSM? Or better yet a reference source for print speeds? KM seems to hide this information very carefully, only listing letter and tabloid speeds for light GSM papers.

    Inline or offline?

    When it comes to punching for spiral, comb, etc., what are the pros and cons of inline vs offline? Same question for booklet making. Obviously, offline is another step added to the process, but are there issues with inline that make offline a better choice despite the extra step?
