print only spot colors

Post by drcpub » Sat May 01, 2021 10:09 pm

Hi, trying to find a feasible way to just print all spot colors in a pdf, combined onto one piece of paper for proofing purposes. The spot colors need to be seen separate from the 4-color process. Ideally, I would like to show just the 4 color as well without the spots. Was wondering if anyone knows a way in pitstop to do this?. I have versions 18 and 20 available to me. If not pitstop maybe someone knows of a plugin or an application that handles this?

Thanks in advance

Very easy, here are the two action lists:
Delete spot colors.png

Delete all but spot colors.png

Using PitStop Server and Switch Core Engine (licensed with PitStop Server), you can automate this:
duplicate the document, apply each action list, and rename the two files.
