    separations preview knockout feature, how to turn off or turn on?

    pkgdesign

      Hello All

       

      I am having problems with the Separations Preview feature in Illustrator. On this layout, I am printing two colours; white and black. For the white, I made a spot colour swatch (20% Cyan) and Black, I used process Black. The trouble for me is when I print out the white, there are knocked out shapes of the ink above it. I do not want this. I want the black to print directly on white. Please see the links for a clearer idea of what I am explaining.

       

      There are some parts that are knocked out and there are some that aren't. How do I make it so that the ink on the bottom does not become knocked out?

      After I "invisible" the other colours in separations preview:

      Please help and thanks in advance.
