  2. Alpha channel issue in print pdf

    Hi All,

    My single-color PDF document that I uploaded to the Scout printer has an error stating that it uses the Alpha channel and is treated as a CMYK plate. My print page did not have an alpha channel.
    Could someone please advise me on how to determine whether the Alpha channel is there and how to prevent this sort of printer issue? My print PDF document is attached here.

    Regards,

    Mani

  3. overprinting a flat white color

    I ask for a simple flag that allows any color - even white - to behave as an opaque spot color and also allows overprinting as is the case in screen printing or offset printing in special colours. This request is not a chimera, but a real need of enormous importance.

  4. Packaging with Include PDF (Print) selected doesn't properly render .ai images

    I have never been able to successfully use the "Include PDF" option when packaging files. I usually package, then export the pdf using my presets, then combine the files in the finder because the pdfs never come out correctly. It seems the problem is only with how it renders ai files. Color mode doesn't matter. The same thing happens whether or not I choose High Quality Print, Press Quality, PDFx1a, etc. Any solutions for this yet? It has been the case since the "Include PDF" feature was first released.  Example has exported pdf on the left, and package generated pdf…

  5. Print files do not get overwritten.

    Whether i'm trying to overwrite a print file created with PDF or .vps using ID 2022 (17.4.1) through the XMPie plugin compatible for this version, it will not overwrite a previous PDF or .vps. This is a very frustrating issue since I've had to update to 2022. the only way around this is to delete the old PDF or .vps prior to running the new /updated print file, which is time consuming step. I constantly have to check time stamps to be certain that the files I send to our presses is the most current files needed, especially if a…

  7. Processing speed slow when printing pdf file

    Slow Processing speed when printing PDF files created in Indesign. Using Version 18.5 and everything is up to date.

    Has been an issue a little over a month after update. Have run tests using older files that have already been printed and a new PDF created from the same file. The processing speed when printing is doubled in the new file. Started trouble shooting on the printers and servers with no success.

    The file size itself is the same only processing the file takes longer. Processing is done with Fiery E-46 A to a Ricoh Pro C7200e Graphics Addition printer.…

  8. Bug: Print Thumbnails adds unwanted pagenumbers and numbers overlap pages

    Hi! When choosing Print & printer Adobe PDF & Thumbnails, the output file has page numbers which I do not want. There is no option to disable those.

    Also the page numbers are mislocated: they overlap the pages instead of being tidely above/under each page.

  10. Imprimir folleto

    Imprimir folleto "cosido" prepara las paginas para la encuadernacion cosida o acaballada, la previsualizacion es correcta. Pero al imprimir, desordena las paginas y el compaginado resultante es erroneo.
    Nota: Probé tambien actualizando a la ultima versión de InDesign, pero sigue el mismo problema.

  13. Path to images in linked InDesign documents not adjusted when packaged

    I have packaged an InDesign document with linked InDesign documents for the printer. The images inside the packaged InDesign files have the wrong path, it has not been adjusted to the packaged images.

    Our printer has printed the product therefor without the linked images which is a desaster. Please fix linked image paths within linked InDesign documents.

  14. Generating traceable and dynamic QR codes

    Currently, creating codes with InDesign is very simple, but limiting. In fact, it is not possible to trace the code or modify it once it is printed.

    To create dynamic QR codes, with modifiable links after printing, it is necessary to rely on third-party websites, such as QR code generator, which however requires a paid subscription.

    If instead we simply want to trace a link, we can upload it to BITLY... but always outside Adobe.

    It would be useful to have all this already included in Adobe, maintaining the ease of creation, the possibility of modifying the link once your…

  15. Stock image names are too long

    When using licensed Adobe stock images, the names from the catalog are entered as the file name which causes the files to not be able to be packaged, resulting in an error. I suggest making it so that the files enter the library as Stock #s instead to avoid this issue.

  16. Unable to print using Separations with trap Application Built In

    When sending a 2+ color job with trap to RIP via Indesign, I keep getting "Printing Error: The Adobe Print Engine has failed to output your data due to an unknown problem." This seems to be an issue with the last 3 versions, along with the updates. I've uninstalled print drivers and reinstalled. Deleted cache files. For a short time I was able to print using an older version on Id but its no longer and option. My coworker who is on Mac has no problem printing with trap. Not sure what's going on. I contacted Adobe when the problem…

  19. Package doesn't include some fonts

    When a supplied InDesign package with ALL necessary Document Fonts is re-packaged for distribution NOT ALL of those Fonts previously included will be re-packaged.

    So, pretty much after the new package is created you have to compare the Document Fonts folders between the 2 to see which fonts are missing, or look through the new packaged document to see which ones are indeed missing.

  20. dashed lines

    Hi I'm just wondering what could be causing dashed lines to print with 'ticks'? The file exports to PDF showing as normal (first image) but prints dashed lines as shown in the second image.

    The same thing happens (randomly) with images created in Illustrator as well as boxes created in Indesign.
    thanks
