Exporting PDF Color issues

Dec 12, 2012 10:10 AM

Hello, I have a document I created for a 7" record label that has a black text over a light grey text w/ a white bg, but when I export to pdf all the texts are black. I am working w/ pantone colors, I deleted all unused colors.

    What application are you using to view the PDF?


    Did you export to PDF, or save to PDF from the print dialog or Print to PDF using the AdobePDF virtual printer?  What settings did you use?


    What version of ID and waht OS?

    Preview is not a reliable viewer for PDF. Check it in Reader or Acrobat Pro.

    Try export via the PDF/X-4 preset
