Incorrect colours in pdf output

Post by BeeGee » 11 Jul 2015, 16:13

I have spent some time creating a double-sided three-fold flyer in Quark 10.5 with blue as the main background colour (box infill, frames etc). Looks superb on screen and on printout from Quark file. However, when I output to PDF, blue translates to black! All pictures show and print correctly. Need to send PDF to commercial printer. I haven't a clue how to rectify this problem as I am not a professional user - merely an enthusiastic amateur. Answers, therefore, in simple, non-technical language please. Hope someone can help.

Sorry for just seeing this post. If you are still needing help the best/quickest would be to collect for output and Zip it all together or simply zip all the required assets up. Then upload to and provide a download link.
