When you separate pages in acro using Split, It removes the X4 on some files-not all
I was wondering about the Pitstop Preflight fix for this, see screen shot, concerned about anything
that would cause a problem, mostly at the bottom where it says Set ICC profile to and Set standard ICC
not sure if using that would change color?

When I columbo it, it seems the X4 pdf I made actually isn't X4 compliant-weird cuz it's vector and text
and I didn't get an error out of indy

guess I'm not busy enough today none of this is urgent, just playing  :laugh:

I would just uncheck the boxes for those ICC profile things.

Also I wouldn't worry if preflight says they are X4 or not. I just use the X4 settings as a guide for making PDF's but then change the compression from jpeg (lossy) to zip (lossless). There are a lot of things that will make a PDF X4 non-compliant but if the files work for you I wouldn't go out of my way to make them compliant.

Yes I think that is the case, I have my X4 settings for Zip compress too.
Thanks Joe!

Copied graphics and using clipboard objects. Looked useful. I just need to find a place to use it.

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.

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

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

Thanks Tracy!

Happened to me too!
just fyi the only way I found to make Device CMYK without changing the colors too much
is convert to cmyk out of indy convert to destination don't include profiles
let me know if you have a better way!
