    Glyph Scaling causes text to output appearing bolder but only when colour is on the page

      The heading says it all.

       

      Justified text - with Glyph Scaling of 98% and 102%

       

      When printed it outputs the text where glyph scaling is rampant in a line as slightly bolder - I can see the yellow and other colours underneath where it's misregistering.

       

      But this only happens on pages with colour.

       

       

      In Preferences I've changed the Appearance and Ouput of text to Accurate, and this made it worse, so I went back to output all blacks as rich black.

       

       

       

      But when I remove the glyph scaling - regardless of colour on the page - the text outputs normally - no extra bolding on the page.

       

       

       

      Using InDesign CS5

      Windows XP

      Konica Minolta Bizhub C550

       

       

      All drivers up to date.

       

       

      I can get the Postscript Drivers if that would help?

       

       

      Any ideas?
