I have piece of text with a drop shadow on top of a box which has an inner shadow. In both cases, the shadows are CMYK black, with 100% opacity, applied using the Multiply method.
|Case 1||Case 2||Case 3||Case 4|
What I would like to know is how to ensure the output is as it should be in the final case, but without the white line, i.e. without flattening. It's worth noting that if the text is located in the main, white, area of the page, then it works correctly in all cases (except the Yucky Box Problem situation which is easily resolved). Thanks in advance!
Apple preview is NOT a reliable PDF viewer for transparent PDF. Try again in Acrobat or Reader and see if your problems are still there.
Giving it a go now, it does sound like an obvious solution
That seems to have resolved the problem. Interestingly, the 'Yucky Box Problem' doesnt seem to occur regardless of whether I'm importing the profile or not, I guess Adobe Reader is doing it's own stuff with the colour space which Preview isn't. Thanks again for your help!
