No matter what I do, all my PDFs come out as RGB, instead of

Post by Michael C. Burgess » 05 Apr 2014, 06:29

I am running Quark 6.5 with Acrobat version 4.0 Professional's on a PC, under Windows XP.

I can only pake PDFs from my Print menu, by selecting, Adobe PDFwriter, AdobePS Acrobat Distiller or Adobe PDF Converter.

When I attempt to use Export, it doesn't make PDFs at all. So I have to use Print.

I have spent three days sending PDFs to the printing plant and, no matter what settings I adjust, the pre-press expert keeps on telling me thay're all arriving with RGB separation. Now he tells me it's even failing to embed fonts. So it's getting worse.

Would somebody please help? This is killing me.

I think the solution to getting Export to work is to set up a virtual postscript printer for Windows, I'm also fairly certain there was a link or two in the Virtual Knowledge Base at the top of this forum but the whole VKB seems to have been deleted. You might also want to check the basics and ensure you set CMYK or As Is for your output colour space.

Does this help at all? It's been a long time for me since using 6.5...
