I am currently implementing an IDS solution in Tokyo. Japanese crop marks are required by my client to be on all outputs, laser printed and X1A PDFs. My solution works fine in InDesign workstation, marks are what they should be. However in IDS I get north american crop marks and the layout name slug is unprintable because it includes Japanese characters. I was told there is no Pacific rim version of IDS, but there appear to be one for InDesign. The menu for Japanese Crop marks is visible in the Japanese localized machines I work with but not in the north american machines, Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!
I don't know about IDS, but if you want to make PDF or Printing with Japanese-style crop marks with north american InDesign, use custom setting of crop marks.
Here's my blog:
Thank you very much for your response. I was able to figure this out, and make IDS use the custom .mrk file. My big hurdle was IDS does not create the folder '/Library/Application Support/Adobe/PrintSpt' as InDesign does. However I manually created the folder, placed the custom .mrk file in it and behold IDS honored the .mrk file, and is producing the correct output. again thank you for your response!
Thank you, thank you, thank you Subi Omu! You have made me and my co-workers very happy.
