Topic: simulate overprint when creating pdf in InDesign
Conf: (P-PDF) Acrobat 6.0, Msg: 156432

Hello all, I have created pdf's in InDesignCS through Distiller 6, and
checked on the Simulate Overprint box in the Output section when
creating my settings in InDesign (Print Preset). This has stopped my
black text from knocking out of the C, M, Y, plates. I have never had
to use this before and am wondering what kind of other issues this
may create at the printers if any. I always use Composite CMYK but
that isn't working for this particular project. Can anyone tell me what
this option may or may not do? Thank you.
