    5th Color


      When customer supplies files to print vendor as a PDF.  How does one determine what the 5th color is in PDF?.  Or should Supplier send Native Indesign  files?

          Spot colors need to be properly created, managed and applied to all appropriate elements within the document and associated graphics. You can verify spot colors by viewing Separation Preview, which can be done in either Indesign or Acrobat. If you are unable to apply spot to all necessary elements, then you would need to talk to your print provider about supplying a packaged file containing native doc with all graphics and all fonts. Your print provider may have additional charges associated with working with native docs and fixing problems.
