Preflight for CMYK text/text vectors that should be 100% black

Indesignsecrets dotcom has a pretty decent archive of scripts, and a section on their Forum dedicated to it also, might be worth browsing.
Everything helps with this thing. Thanks.
I use that a LOT for pickup jobs when there's a dozen or so files that need renaming, simple but zippy!Have to admit, I have never used Bridge before. I am going to have to look at it when time allows..... just realized it has a really cool "batch rename" feature for renaming any type of files in a folder. I could have used this many times in the past.
I'd be glad to if I had any. Sorry.
You're still my hero, Joe!
we use agfa apogee.... but this is diffrent work.... we add a cutter guides into customers pdf and we are suppose to check and correct the data and send it back.... when the pdf come in the apogee workflow it is supposed to be checked and corrected
What workflow are you using? If the 100% K text knockout was the issue, prinergy has an option to make all 100% K set to overprint. Even then I go through the imposed file and toggle black to see if anything is funky.
abc: yes here it is, the test file.
the situation is... this week Ive made two mystakes during my prepress work, I dint find overprint in attached pdf and the impure CMYK black /my previous topic/ in another data and let the data go on to the print....and you know the next steps... my manager went ..... and than " you should be more careful!!!" ........ we use pitstop server to preflight pdf .....so now I am triing to modify the preflight profile to reveal these issues
I can imagine the nighmare but overprint for black text is included in preflight menu and I think it is almost the same
There's a reason they are not in the preflight profile. Such checks are so diverse, and the permutations so great, that the interface would be a nightmare.
By allowing it to be an Action list then you allow a high degree of customization.
What you effectively want is two select actions, one for dark objects, a second for overprinting, an 'and' to link them together, and then a 'log selection' if they are found, for which you can write your own error message.
I'll cover this one in the next monthly workshop. If you have any suitable demo files can you share?
The Finder batch rename feature is "lite"...
Yeah it is but works fine in most instances. As always if it doesn't suit your needs you can always look to buy a better option.
