black turning dark gray when exporting as PDF

Post by rickpoet » 30 Oct 2007, 03:08

Hi,

When I export documents as a PDF or EPS (either as CMYK, RGB or Grayscale), anything assigned as Black (I use a rich black, CMYK 63,52,51,100) turns to a really dark gray, but noticable not solid black.

Does anyone know how to make it so I get my black blacks?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Just try creating a new black color in RGB mode with R-0%, G-0% and B -1% and then check the results
