[CS1] Overprint Black

All visible steps have an Overprint Black option. Overprint black is mostly useful in creating CMYK PDFs for long run printers. However, it has a few side effects you should know about.

When overprint black is set to yes, the step will:

  • Disable all color fields and assume they are set to black.
  • Place all overprint black items on top of all non-overprint black items.
  • Convert images to grey scale.
