What are you using to view the PDF?
Just the 'mac preview' option.
Does that impact the view of the final product? Having uber stress trying to figure this out.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
Use Acrobat or Reader. Preview is well-known to be incapble of rendering complex PDF.
Echoing what Peter touched on.
Mac Preview does not address all the Adobe modules in Acrobat.
Acrobat is best for viewing.
You say it's a dust jacket, dust jackets are print, so have you used a print profile of CMYK that your printer has provided?
If not - then please get one. Also calibrate you monitor for colour.
If it's being printed, get a colour proof and talk with your printers on colour issues.
I have used CMYK to design - and it is really only in black, white, greys and an image that was provided by the editor.
I am a webgirl who hasn't used INDesign since the early 2000s - feeling a bit out of touch as I make this new move from web production to print production.
Have put an assload of work into the jacket, will try and view in acrobat.
Thank you so much.
