Separations Anxiety

Print Separations to PDF

It's easy to print separations from the Print dialog box: I just go to the Output panel and choose Separations from the Color popup menu. But when I export an InDesign file as a PDF file, the Export to PDF dialog box is missing the Output panel altogether, and there's no other place where I can choose anything other than full CMYK composite output. I'd like to make a PDF of my separations so I could check them out onscreen instead of wasting a bunch of paper.


Whassamatta, pal, the Separations Preview palette ain't good enough for ya? Just go to Window > Output > Separations Preview to open it up. Select Separations in the palette's View popup menu, and you're good to go.
