illustrator Gradient Seperation Problem

Posted on Thu, 18 Mar 2004 at 12:59



I am having the same problem that Dave Mckinley is having, cant output 2 color spot separations without them landing directly on top of each other, I am running illustrator 9.0 on a G4 , if I upgrade to 10 will that help? I also dont know if it is a problem with the angles I am using ive tried every possible angle and it doesnt work, i am outputting on a wide format HP laser printer, Ive also tried printing the separations seperately by going from 1st color to white and reversing the order the colors just never knock out and it becomes much more apparent when i want to thicken the dots and give it a low lpi like a 25 lpi. someone please help

When out putting spot colors from illustrator, all color other than CMYK have 45º angle.
