PDF Proofs: Common Glitch, Easy Fix

When viewing PDF proofs, it is important to emulate the printed page as best as possible. Notably, Acrobat does not default to the proper viewing settings for overprinted inks. If you do not have your Overprint options set as follows, you may see strange artifacts and/or an odd appearance when viewing PDF proofs that we send you, making your proof an inaccurate reflection of the final printed page.

Here are instructions for both Windows and Mac for editing these settings:


Windows Version of Acrobat:

1: Go to Menu "Edit"

2: Select "Preferences"

3: Select the Category "Page Display"

4: Change Overprint Preview to "Always" (see JPG below for screen shot)

Mac Version of Acrobat:

1: Go to Menu "Acrobat"

2: Select "Preferences"

3: Select "General"

4: Select the Category "Page Display"

5: Change Overprint Preview to "Always" (see JPG below for screen shot)
