I would recommend that you use:
Thank you for all your input on this topic. Are you suggesting I remove the preflight you provided yesterday and replace it with these two? Then add my own preflight which is checking for fonts, overprint, etc? That would be a total of 3 preflights, correct?
One can run two Preflight nodes is series, one for the fixup(s) and one preflight checking. If one performs the transparency fixup(s) using Preflight there is no need to use Optimize. I've included two more fixups:
Got it! That seems to fix the boxes around the transparent areas, so thank you. Is the Optimize node still needed with "Remove Transparent Objects" and "Flatten Transparent Objects" options selected?
Is it possible to edit that preflight? I'm currently using my own preflight (with no fixups, only checking for embedded fonts, overprinting, etc) and would like to be able to implement my current preflight file checks with your transparency settings.
Put the .kpfx file at C:\Xerox\FreeFlow\Core\00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000\Data\Profiles. For the Preflight node select the .kpfx as a fixup -- see below.
Thank you. How do I use/apply the .kfpx file you provided?
Yes. As well as the area under the big yellow arrow at the top of the page. Thank you!
Have I outlined the objectionable image quality outcome?
Thank you for the reply. However, when I try to use those settings, it messes up the transparency. I cannot attach an image to this thread, but if you will please visit the two links you will see what I mean. In particular, look at the area on the left around the two gutter graphics.
