Remove Dieline on all pages
« on: January 18, 2021, 12:59:04 PM »
I know I'm missing something really obvious, client graciously supplied a bunch of BC PDFs with an odd-shaped dieline (in Magenta) and I need to remove it so the iGen doesn't print. Re-mapped the Magenta to a Spot (Dieline) but is there a canned Action to set all instance of that Spot Color to "None" or remove it?

I guess, since it's in the exact same position on all pages I could use that fancy coordinate based thing ABC has demo'd a hundred times, but I don't recall how.  :-[ :-[ :-[

That action is not that hard once you use it. I use it all the time. When you have time you should try it out.
