    Indesign Preflight Problem

    waltond1511

      So, I was given a book to proof and send off to be printed. When checking the links every link gives me the error of, "Content generates Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow Plate." How do I solve this problem? I have never even seen this problem in five+ years of indesign use

          Are you printing in color?

           

          This wouldn't necessarily be a fatal error even if you aren't (if you, then of course you need CMY plates) since you can export to a grayscale PDF (if you have CS6 or newer).

           

          Bottom line is it sounds like you're using a preflight profile designed for a Black ink-only workflow.
