I have had Indesign now for almost 3 months and still have not figured out how to do a spot color separation using PDF’s. I want to separate a 2 color print job to send to my printer but have not been able to.
I have looked all over the web for Youtube for help and on your site but have not found anything. I am thinking that this may be something that is not possible to do with Indesign. Several printers have told me that was not possible in Indesign. Have advised me to use other programs. Is this true?
Your help would be greatly appreciated. If Indesign is not able to do this what software would you recommend?
It's really the printer's job to create the separations. You send the composite PDF and they take it from there. If they insist that you make the seps, you must print to postscript and distill.
