Grayscale Printing from Quark 2016

Postby evabit » 31 May 2018, 03:17

Mac OS X 10.11, Canon EFI RIP, Quark 2016

If we print directly from Quark 2016, the shades of grey colour are insufficiently nuanced.

If we print a PDF-file generated with Quark 2016 everything is ok.

Hi Eva,

are you using the "Grayscale 100k" output color model?
Are you using the correct PPD?

Thanks
Matthias

Thanks
