I have a complex illustartor CS4 document. When it prints I want only black to be printed. Any other areas should be unprinted - the stock will show through. The document contains a large number of shapes and numerous layers with black strokes and fills, but it also contains a number of shapes with white fills. I need these shapes to be filled because they hide the shapes behind them, however I don't want them to print as white fills. I just want them to hide what is below them.
How can I set this up to print correctly?
How are you printing? Under most circumstances, white = paper.
The exception being a spot white color, which unless you went out of your way to make, should not be an issue. Spot colors are indicated in the swatches panel as swatches with a small dot in the lower right corner.
Thanks. Was not spot.
