    Turning a job into one spot plate


      I have to output a diary page artwork to PDF as a single spot plate – in this case to be printed as pms 288. At the moment, the page consists of text colored in the 288 blue swatch where Colour Type 'spot' has been selected.


      There are also several other objcets including logos and a bitmap image which have been supplied as Photoshop jpegs, for which I've selected a 288 monotone.


      How do I go about creating a PDF, to be printed job in one colour, but which, naturally, show in Acrobat Output Preview as separate spot plates. Can I combine them, somehow, in InDesign? I'm probably missing something glaringly obvious here and I'm stuck for an answer.


      Any help would be greatly appreciated.
