Heavens forbid.LOL - I was just pointing out that in InDesign those are the two "default" black options. Maybe the offset printers should make a coalition and talk to Adobe about not making those the two "black options"
Don't give them something else to 'help' with.
That is if we want to have some consistency and reliability.
One Recent Example: Changing RGB White to an existing 'transparent' color for web designers. Oops. "Where is my white type?" It disappeared when you converted to CMYK for printers!
And do not talk about anything recent related to fonts.
BUT - you say the operating systems control the fonts! Sure they do. Wink Wink Nudge Nudge.
Most of our recent 'font issues' started AFTER some unnamed software company decided to monetize their font library on line.
And just suspiciously a real competitor in the 'creative space' NEEDS to have reliable pdf font compatibility.
Amazing how those pesky font issues just keep changing, isn't it?
Not paranoid, not not not.
