Color font printing in muted colors in pdf/print
There are some issues with the rendering/printing of color-fonts (created with Fontself) in InDesign 2020. This looks like a bug because switching from pdf 1.6 to pdf 1.3 and back to 1.6 in the pdf export dialog-box solves the issue. This isn't an option in our InDesign server setup though. Are there any ideas for a workaround?
I ended up replacing the font in my books so the printer would process them correctly. I'm not sure I trusted any PDF setting to fix the problem that showed up only in their RIP, and we were losing too much time on a project that was already overdue. See the link that Uwe posted for my topic on the forum.
