Use export to PDF, not print.
For mor problem solution we need more information.
I have always used Print to Adobe PDF without issues am I doing it wrong all along, these ghost areas are around Image boxes, not text.
Following your method it ask me to change to RGB but this is for a PRINT file for Artwork not just a posted document
All the more important to export! Distilling PDFs can only be described as archaic.
What are your PDF settings?
Pages have several Layers, with both Graphics and Text, when this is Printed using FILE >Print> Adobe PDF, if I check All Printers Marks the Ghosting was removed
Will need to continue tommorow if you can I hope that is the Case, What PDF settings are you referring to ?
When I export it want to change CMYK to RGB?
Which PDF settings when you export to PDF.
I have not used this method for PDF Creation so am unsure which settings are suitable, In looking up some Preferred suggestions this may be correct advise if you can
PDF/x-1A:2001, Acrobat 4 (PDF1.3)
Compression CCITT Group 4, Bicubic Downsample to 300 dpi ,
Convert to Destination, Preserve Numbers,
Document CMYK - US Web Coated (SWOP) v2
- Checked - All Spots to Process
- Checked - Use Standard Lab Values for Spots
Don't use print for PDF creation, why are you insisting in an old archaic workflow?
THank you for your insight Willi
Do the above Export Settings seem logical?
From my investigation it seems that this may be the Preferred method.
If you use RGM images you can preserve numbers for cmyk content and convert to output cmyk. (Better would be avoid any conversion and export as X-4, but this is a different disussion.)
PDF/X-1a and X-3 will result in a flattened PDF without transparency.
X-1a has to be used if a printer requires a CMYK PDF without any transparency.
X-3 would allow different color spaces inside the PDF.
X-4 additionally transparency.
The resolution (in ppi, not dpi!) is with 300ppi for most purposes ok.
Spot to proces will result in a converted process color based on the CM setting, if you used it in an EPS and use the Distiller (as you have done until now), this setting has no effect on placed graphics, that is why it is important to avoid EPS and Distiller.
The settings for PDF creation in Export and in Print to PDF are essentially the same for the most entries, so you should know their meaning either way.
Bob see the EXPORT Setting I am using and let me know if these seem OK
This is not how I was creating PDF files in the past, seems a little knowledge can get me in trouble.
Moving forward I will use the EXPORT method hope you can confirm these settings are suitable for a worry free print job
