Preparing Digital Artwork
Adobe InDesign 1.0 for Macintosh
PLEASE NOTE: When creating graphics in page layout programs such as Adobe InDesign with the intention of outputting to an imagesetter or platesetter, it is extremely important that the person creating the illustration have a thorough understanding of the details of imaging in a prepress environment. There are an abundance of complex problems that can occur at output if paths are set up improperly, colors are indicated incorrectly, or other elements are constructed improperly. Trapping issues can also present problems if not addressed. The more complicated your illustration becomes, the greater the probability of problems at output, and therefore the need for more expertise and experience in creating the files.
If you set any type in InDesign, you must only use CPC supported fonts.
