    Save a screen shot. How you make it depends on your OS.


    In Illustrator 15 Save for Web shows overprints…

    Or you can use Flatten Transparency. If all you have are overprints and all objects have 100% Normal opacity then you need to force flattening. Draw a white rectangle over everything and set it to Multiply.

    CS 6 also shows thee preview in save for the web and in Acrobat I believe if you use output preview in the productions tools you see see the preview as well but only while the output preview window is opened.
