Chapter 24. Print > Trapping type

Trapping type

When it comes to trapping, a text box is treated like a single foreground object. The text box color will trap to the background color based on the current trap settings. When a text box with a background of None is on top of a background color, QuarkXPress will trap the type, even if the type itself isn't overlapping the background color . This can occur with type that appears inside a large text box.

Press the icon on the Trap Information palette to display an explanation of the Default Trap setting. Here, the names of the two colors are listed; either the Edit Trap or the Trap Preferences dialog box is listed as the source of the trap decision (the Source of Trap Values); and the significant trap option (Property) Overprint Limit should be in boldface. We say “should be” because as of this writing, it's not working.
