Cut Marks in CMYK or Black "ALL"

For Offset rpinting  i like to use Cut Marks as Registration Marks too (Marks on all 4 plates).

In Preps i can choose if the Cut Mark  Color is Black oder CMYK.

Will this available in Freeflow Core too?

 

P.S. with 4.0.2.0 now i can make lines with custom color, but the old registration marks are still black only?!

There's a config setting to toggle K Only vs Registration cut marks.

I will send details via private message.

 

This is currently a global setting so the change will apply to all imposition.

However, it is pretty simple to add a preflight profile to convert Registration to K only if you wanted to do that in only certain workflows.

Hello Javier,

 

 Thank You for the answer!

I did not find the settings strings  in the configuration file, so i will add them somewhere in the file ?!

Anywhere it will be better, if i can choose that in the GUI, because some workflows are for digital printing and some are for offset.

 

Can you send me an exported preflight example changing only the color of the cutmark or a screenshot with the corection setting of this preflight?

I would not add anythingAre you using FreeFlow Core v4.0.2.0? If not then you should upgrade:

The included preflight fixup that converts registration color objects to black. See screenshots

Hello Javier,

 

Thank you for the preflight. But for my PDF-example it doesn't work. How can i send you my example.

Or can you send me an example file, that works on your core.

Can you send me the example file via private message? If it is too large, can you upload it to a service such as WeTranfer and send me a link via private message?

 

I would prefer to figure out what needs to change to make your example work vs giving you something that works. I mean... the whole point is for this to work with the files you already have...
