I have just aquired Illustrator 8. I have been using CorelDraw9 for quite sometime now. I am wondering about doing separations for screen printing. I have noticed that my separation setup tab is grey'd out and cannot access it. Could someone please help on this situation?

RE: Separations

The first time you do seps in AI you need to select a ppd (postscript printer description) that goes with your paticular model of postscript printer. If you do not have one you can print to file using the adobe distiller virtual printer. To find your .ppd, do a find on *.ppd on your C drive. You should find a whole folder full of em somewhere in C/windows/system32/spool/drivers.. or something like that. Now just click on the button 'select ppd' in your separations window and navigate to that file.
