    How to prevent 100% black text from being converted to process black when saving PDF from Ai (CS4)?

    IndigoDog

      I am saving a PDF from Illustrator CS4 that contains only 100% black text. My print provider is telling me that the text in the PDF has been converted to 4C, rich black. I have tried all different PDF creation settings (high quality, press quality, PDFX3, default) from Illustrator but nothing helps. How can I create a PDF that maintains 100% black and prevents it from converting to process black?
