I am having problems with all sorts of things:-

1. When I set a background in the master page (It covers only part of the page) I get blead through soldid colours placed on top.

2. When I drop images with transparent backgrounds (GIFs), they print with a yellow background on my printer.

3. I have tables in my document and when I export using PDF-X and PDX-X text to curves the text in the tables becomes very pixelated.

None of the above problems seems to happen if I export to PDF with no filter. can you explain the significance of this.

I assume that this renders the export to PDF-X useless and if so does this matter?

Hi Paul,
Try to convert your images to jpeg/tiff with some color profiles (using for ex.).
Mac OS X generates PDF/X-3 (2002), so you may use RGB or CMYK color modes (unlike PDF/X-1 that uses only CMYK color mode).
More infos about PDF/X:
a (6 MB) PDF file
But are you sure you need to generate pdf/x files?

Hope this helps.

Hello Paul,
Could you send a sample document that shows problems 1 and 2 to us:
We'll check in on our computers.

Please specify the version of Swift Publisher you are using (Swift Publisher > About Swift Publisher).

How did you insert a GIF image into the document? (copy & paste, drag & drop, Insert > Image, ....)

Did you apply any effects to the inserted image? (cropping, masking, Image Tricks plug-in, ....)


Return to “Swift Publisher”
