View Full Version : indexed on cmyk colour

I have an issue with a supplied PDF. Print on a KN 6501 with Fiery RIP
The Pdf background is make up of C=0 M=0 Y=0 K=100 - as shown in pitstop
There is an image which is also supposed to print K only pitstop shows this as Indexed on cmyk colour
But what actually happens is the image prints in CMYK and then that colour will depend on the Simulation selected, setting None is the best option but still not correct and not suitable for other work.

It appears as the because the image is Indexed on CMYK it is treated as a full colour object would this be correct does anyone know any fix's ??

More info needed...
- what Model Fiery?
- what system software version is it running?
- is it up to date in regards to Fiery patches installed?

Please be sure to work with your KM dealer on this matter. They can insure it is fully patched.

I know that issues similar to what you describe were fixed with version upgrades, or patches.
