    What's this on my Illustrator Artboard?

    Can't see the attachment, but sounds like perspective grid. "Click View > Perspective Grid > Show Grid. Press Ctrl+Shift+I (on Windows) or Cmd+Shift+I (on Mac) to show the Perspective Grid.

    HP Indigo 5600 Digital Press Color Matching Issue

    To use the inbuilt Pantone licensed lookup table, make sure your ticket template is setup correctly! Other wise it'll convert to the alternate CMYK value in the Spot Colour.

    Clipping Path Options - Issue

    Hey Eliox, Think I can help. When you place a PSD (CMD+D) tick 'Show Import Options' then place, Import Options will open up, goto 'Image' tab and tick 'Apply Photoshop Clipping Path'. Seems to stay on when you tick it, and stay off when you untick it. I think this goes on an...

    Change Image Spot Colour in Action List

    I know you can you change this using the inspector tool > curve editing > Convert to Spot. But can you change a Spot Channel in an Image to a different Spot via an Action list? I've had a little look and I can't see how, but I am not the best at action lists - yet!

    Hot foil stamping on Matte laminated sheet

    Matt black pigment foil? Good luck with that ;) - they're really meant for stamping dates.. rather than the graphic arts. What's the grade and make of foil? We get a semi decent result with Gloss Black foils.

    HP Indigo 5500 Screen Rule & Fineness

    Adobe vs Heidelberg . . .????

    Adobe vs Heidelberg . . .????

    CMYK or Spot Colours? How's the image setup? What version of PDF are you using? PDFX? Or just anything? What version does your RIP support? These are the questions i'd be asking myself. Had this before on an Indigo 5000. It was due to transparency and spot colours combined.

    Exporting dielines

    I've never really used Action Lists before, but had a play with Stephens and they're pretty awesome. Is there a way to get your head around it to create my own? It doesn't seem 100% logical to me right now.

    Indesign - Ad hoc 'Do Not Downsample' option

    dabob That affects every image. stephen-marsh Some images are not really suitable for a 1bit tiff. It should really be a vector graphic.
