Display ink coverage information for all separations
Since pdfToolbox 8.0 you have the opportunity to select individual color separations in the PDF file using the Visualize panel to view the values. In version 8.1 the tool is extended with ink coverage information for all separations.
- Go to "View".
- Click "Visualize individual separations".
- Select in the list the color separation that you want to view. The values of the selected color separation showes below. The image will change.
- The user can see not only the values of the selected color separation, but also the values of all other color separations in the PDF file.
It is of course possible to detect colorants using a Preflight Check, e.g. by using the predefined "Analyze pages for effectively used plates" or the attached Profile, which has been extended by separate Checks for individual CMYK colorants. The percentage ink coverage is listed in the trigger values of the respective Check.
