[Scribus] Printing Separation Questions
Tue Sep 25 15:17:00 CEST 2007
I'm doing some labels and playing with the SpotColor features (with
18.104.22.168). All seems to be setter right for pdf files, but I have to
print the file in black and white so I can create a "laserfilm" for
flexography matrix generations (cyrrel) so I have to print it as color
The print dialog seems to be good, but I noticed that things like
frequency and color angle are missing... As I suspected, I checked the
output Ps file and... "tadaaahh" u_u no information about frequency,
spot funciont or angle... of course that the command setscreen at each
page would solve all of this... I tried to fill the fields at pdf
options but it did not work either...
Look, I know separation at postscript files are kind of old stuff at
Desktop Publishing, but there are thousands of small printers arround
the world that would appreciate a lot if they just have the option to
genereate their own separated films ^_^. (here in Brazil, kind of 16k)
GhostScript could be used but... since scribus has it's own Postscript
output libraries, I think it is much more productive if it could be
setted that way... Just like pdf options, postcript options for
there could even be a field for custom spot functions for each color!
An advanced feature is custom frequency, angle and spotfunction for each
object (if requested). That would improve 1000% the flexibility of
scribus... but this could be further..I think the separation thing is
more necessary O_o.
What do you think?
