    Black becomes slightly transparent in PDF

    SimonLinden

      I'm having problem with black color showing as slightly transparent when exported from InDesign to PDF. My black is set as CMYK 0 0 0 100. I know it is normal for this black to show as a little grey when viewed as PDF in Acrobat, but is it normal for it to be displayed with transparency? If I open the PDF in Apple's preview it shows as opaque and rich black. The same happens if I turn off overprint in Acrobat (normally I have it set to automatic). Now, I wonder is this a problem or is Acrobat displaying it wrong for some reason?
