Not to mention we have plenty of customers that are NOT, I REPEAT, NOT power users and if they can get his thing going decently maybe we could convince these people that for $50 they could have a real page layout app instead of using Word, Excel, Pages, Numbers, Power Point, Quark, etc... and send us a decent PDF. Wait...who am I kidding. Nevermind.

Compadre here just opened up a (thankfully only 12pp) job. Regardless of colour in it, we need to run the OFC in colour, the rest has to be mono.

I suggest a Cmd+D, to have a look. Out of Excel.   :strangle:

Into Indy to place etc....Export.

Pages were of random size.   :rolleyes:

The worst prepress job I've had in my life was done in Excel. I still have nightmares about it 15+ years later.
