Setting up publisher for professional printing and color separation.


Use control panel/add new printer. The install file file you are looking for is placed somewhere like this: C:\Program files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11 and the name is MSCOL11.INF


To resolve this issue, use one of the following procedures:
1. From the print menu Select "Generic Color PS for Commercial Printing" as your printer output
2. On "File/Print/Advanced settings" select Composite CMYK.
3. From the Tools/Commercial Printing Tools/Color printing select "Process colors CMYK".
Print your pages to a output file with the ending .ps.

Open Adobe Acrobat Distiller and select "Press Quality" settings, or better PDF/X-1a if you have the professional version (check with your printer). Open your .ps file, and it will produce your .pdf The resulting PDF file should be separated CMYK


Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information at the Microsoft Knowledge Base website as it becomes available.
