Description Jason Giglio 2005-06-30 07:17:36 UTC
Fails:
gsc -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=tiffsep -sOutputFile=temp_tmp -r25 -c '<<
/SeparationColorNames [ /Cyan /Magenta /Yellow /Black /(9116) /(5150) /(1455)
/(3068) /Die /Varnish ] /SeparationOrder [ /Cyan /Magenta /Yellow /Black /9116
/5150 /1455 /(3068) ] >> setpagedevice' -f /storage/archive/02900PAP600.pdf

Works:
gsc -dBATCH -dNOPAUSE -sDEVICE=tiffsep -sOutputFile=temp_tmp -r25 -c '<<
/SeparationColorNames [ /Cyan /Magenta /Yellow /Black /(9116) /(5150) /(1455)
/(3068) /Die /Varnish ] /SeparationOrder [ /Cyan /Magenta /Yellow /Black /9116
/5150 /1455 /3068 ] >> setpagedevice' -f /storage/archive/02900PAP600.pdf


For some reason putting parentheses around color names in SeparationOrder causes
the separation limit to be triggered even when only 8 are specified in
SeparationOrder.

Comment 2 Jason Giglio 2005-06-30 10:40:48 UTC
Don't use parentheses with /color.  It's one or the other.
Comment 3 Dan Coby 2005-06-30 10:41:52 UTC
For spot color names, use either parenthesis (i.e a PostScript string) or a 
leading slash (i.e. a PostScript name).  Do not do both for a single colorant.

Thus << /SeparationColorNames [ (Dark Blue) (Light Green) /2620 ] >> would be 
valid.
