I recently purchased CD7 for use in a small magazine publishing business ...
it's been a time consuming and costly experience so far. I run a PC based
system using Pagemaker 6.5 for layout. Problems:
1. Imported tiffs don't separate. I've used CD7 to make up adverti*t
artwork - e.g. import tiff files, add and manipulate text and other graphics
etc, then export the resulting art from CD7 as an EPS file to place in
Pagemaker. From Pagemaker the final layout is written as a postscript file
for imagesetting. However, in all the EPS files exported from CD7, the tiffs
did not separate, but appeared as a grayscale composite on the black plate
only! All the other graphics and text in the files would separate fine - but
not the tiffs that were imported into CD7. As a result I had to entirely
remake the artwork without using imported tiffs in CD7. This cost me an
extra couple of days work and an extra set of film. I was not a happy man.
2. The EPS files seem to get blown up to a huge size - way out of proportion
to the elements contained therein.
Are these known problems? Can I download a fix?
in Hamilton - where it happens!
