esmith Posted March 20, 2009 Share Posted March 20, 2009 I am trying without success to print a variable data job with PANTONE 280 C set as a spot color to an Indigo 5000. If I create a test file in PDF format (with variable data) the color holds. If I save the same variable data job as JLT, the ink imports as a process build. Both the PDF and JLT files are being uploaded to a hot folder on the Indigo that supports the spot color. My predecessor claimed to have figured out a solution. She reportedly defined the color in the Advanced/Colors... FP menu (even though the color was not used in a variable data element) so that the color would "pass through" to the JLT format. I tried that and it did not work for me. I will try posting the same question on the HP Indigo forums (dscoop.org), but frankly their forums don't impress me much. I'm hoping a fellow FP user will have a solution instead! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
