That must have been it. The action lists are working on other files just fine since.

Thanks Tracy!

I like their design better than g4'rs but they were much heavier and less roomier inside.

Intel macpro's were a little bit better in terms of ''architecture'' and those were the last pro macs i've seen inside printshops, when darth vader was announced they all gone to imac's ( or pc's ).

We started with the old beige G3's this was before I officially worked in our shop (family business). When I started working I was a bit more aggressive in getting us up to date computer wise. We went from a one mac and multiple PC shop to 99.99% Mac save for a dedicated XP machine for a RIP that is still going strong after 10 years. Went to the Dual G4's and after that I kept one dual g4 workstation and I moved to a MacBook pro and then eventually upgraded both workstations to iMacs. Definitely better bang for the buck in my opinion considering the display that came with them. Even better now with the 5K considering it was the same price as a Mac Pro and equally specced for the what I need it to do and has a 5K monitor, adding that to a Mac Pro shoots the price up another couple thousand. I was hoping Apple was going to announce something last event but looks like there will be no talk about it till next year... if then. The supposed love and care Apple says they still have for the pro market seems to be all talk to keep pro users strung along.

Are your images Device CMYK?
it doesn't work unless it's device CMYK for reducing the ink
checking should work

I ran a setup like that for years, never a problem. That being said it is an 8 year old computer now, hardware can start to go wonky.

I would not go with an Apple monitor, they are expensive, overly expensive in my opinion for what you get. A regular adapter to HDMI will run perfectly, though I would stick with Apple only adapters. Heard some bad things about after market adapters.

I think the last workstations worth their money was G4's, they were pricey as ever, but were easy to deal with -except for the cubes :-p  -

I don't think apple gives a penny for the graphic arts segment anymore, i wouldn't be surprised if i learned that desktop and laptop sold for strictly professional use wouldn't add up to more than 5% of apples total sales these days...

They definitely do not care about the real pro market. If they did it would not have taken this long for their laptops to have more then 16 gigs of RAM. I loved the G4 design, I have 2 sitting in my basement collecting dust. I think they perfected it though with the Dual G5 tower. Amazing looking computer that I would say stands up to todays designs and super clean and easy to work with. Everything was right there and laid out much better then the G4.

Has anyone had problems running action lists? I have this one to check for 320% ink coverage and another one to reduce total ink coverage to 320% or less using the GRACoL profile, however it's not showing any fixes in the report. I have it set to always show results. In this particular PDF, I have ink coverage around 350% but it's not showing up in Pitstop.
