Print preview Print preview mlav (TechnicalUser) (OP) 7 Jul 03 15:53 Hi,I'm beginner in Indesign. Is there a print preview option where you can check how document will look before you print.Thank you. RE: Print preview Kliot (Programmer) 7 Jul 03 16:55 mlav,As far as I know there isn't a print preview mode per say, but you do have a preview mode for viewing your document. It's the bottom two buttons on the toolbar "normal view mode" & "preview view mode" or "W" from the keyboard.Perrin RE: Print preview jimoblak (Instructor) 7 Jul 03 17:10 See your 'View' menu for options. If you are interested in a color separation preview, I always print separations to a PDF to view onscreen without wasting paper/film/plates. - - picklefish - - RE: Print preview mlav (TechnicalUser) (OP) 8 Jul 03 13:21 Thank you. Can you explain to me how to print separations to a PDF and see it onscreen.MATT RE: Print preview jimoblak (Instructor) 8 Jul 03 15:41 The EXPORT PDF function will not allow separations so you would need to use the normal print dialog to print to a postscript file on a virtual printer - - and then distill it into a PDF with Acrobat Distiller. I do this with every page layout application when I question how the document will separate.You can use the EXPORT PDF to create a one plate separation by choosing 'Advanced>Ink Manager' from the Export dialog. Choose the ink you want on the plate and then export the PDF for your screen preview. - - picklefish - - RE: Print preview Kliot (Programmer) 1 Oct 03 17:55 Adobe just announced the latest Indesign upgrade (Indesign CS) and it finally has a separation preview, should be available the end of November.Expert from Adobe.com:Separations Preview palettePrevent printing errors by using the Separations Preview palette to preview plates, overprinting, ink limits, and more.
