Use a device link profile with ink reduction and GCR. Why would you want to change overprints, wasn't the art designed with the overprints in place?
I am seeing a lot of overprint all of a sudden too. You can change prefs and uncheck "overprint black".No, it is not okay, prepping for offset presses and was not designed that way. I am seeing 100% black fills with parts of picture showing through and text that doesn't want to KO/trap because of these settings. And I know the designer intends the black to KO or crop a picture, and not show through. Good thing I have PitStop.

Why would you want to change overprints, wasn't the art designed with the overprints in place?From what I'm seeing in their PDFs the Illustrator Overprints are causing the ink limit to be over 300%. I don't visually see a difference with the two overprint modes on their files.I'm not sure I have a GCR device link profile. At least we don't in XMF, otherwise I would do so. Is there a default GCR in acrobat/pitstop 12?Thanks!
Not in PitStop 12, but yes in PitStop 17 where Enfocus has included device links with ink reduction. Not sure how much GCR is in them, but they appear to be very high quality links that you would find useful.
For black text builds, you can go to Global Change. Change Specific Color. Grab fill. Change to whatever you want. Run per page or complete document. I use it all the time and it is very fast and effective. The tabloids send in shit with dozens of RGB builds in the text and odd intents. Global change is often faster and more dynamic than setting up an action.
