Re: [PPLetterpress] Problems with InDesign 2.
I would definitely try Bryan's suggestion, and in the procedure he has
indicated. Sometimes a PDF will provide useful information as to what is
wrong. And many service bureaus are now requesting PDFs to output from
rather than directly from the file. It's becoming quite necessary to
understand the ins and outs of Distiller.
From what you have said here this is my take on it:
When you say the type is styled, do you mean you have applied styles
(bold, underline, italic, outline, etc) from the Font Style menu? If so,
these attributes are not necessarily going to be captured by the
PostScript imagesetter. If you apply the Italic Style to a word rather
than using the Italic font itself you are not necessarily getting the
true italic. Some fonts are keyboarded differently and may not be linked
to the Style attributes. You need to use the correct font rather than
have the software program simulate the effect. This can cause problems
at the service bureau. The stylized effect is not always recognized. In
PM this is easily corrected by making all the changes in the Story
Editor. But this will also trash your kerning.
If you are using any version of Mac OS 10 you may be having other
problems related to accessing fonts. I think these have been worked out
with the recent Panther version but don't know many folks who are using
it yet. If you are using a PC, don't know if anything I've said here is

- Hi Everyone,
Sorry for cross posting this request but I need to ferrat this out whereever it may be.
Does anyone have a manual for a Challenge Single head paper drill Style E?
I have contacted Challenge and if they have any in their archives they are not admitting to them. I got thestandard response that it doesn't meet ansi standards etc. etc. - you know the drill..... (unconscious pun there!)
If someone has one I would appreciate a scan or a photocopy for which I would be able to cover costs.
