Greetings,

I installed X6 the other day and now and again I notice it prints a faded blue box around a bitmap. I have seen this happen in older versions of acrobat, but not sure why this would happen in X6. I went back to X4 and it prints just fine. Appreciated if anyone had any ideas?

I'm printing to a Xerox Docucolour 252.

What are your color management settings?

Is the image RGB?

David Milisock

Thanks for your reply.

RGB colour profile = SRGB IEC61966-2,1

CMYK colour profile = US Web Coated (SWOP) V2

Grayscale: 20% dot gain

Primary Colour = CMYK

Rendering = Absolute Colourmetric

And yes, as a rule of thumb I keep all my bitmaps CMYK as the Fiery driver seems to do a better colour conversion vs CorelDraw. The odd thing is it only does it with certain bitmaps, I don't see a rhyme or reason.

So I played with the colour engine settings. When I selected "none" the box went away but the image quality was hideous.

You must have changed that as relative colorimetric is the default, while perceptual is what's needed
