1. What does Setup do?
The system uses different inspection algorithms based on the setup selected, as determined by the type of files being inspected.
2. Does Graphics Inspection support both Digital and Proof setups?
Yes. The system uses different inspection algorithms based on the type of setup selected. Digital is the default setup. To change to the Proof setup, expand the Options panel, click Setup, and select Proof.
3. What is the difference between a digital setup and a proof setup?
The Digital setup is used for the inspection of original artwork created by a graphics department against revised editions. Digital setups do not use Refine, Auto Distort, or Smoothing (image correction tools).
The Proof setup is used for the inspection of original artwork created by a graphics department against a printer's proof (what the artwork looks like after it is printed). Proof setups use Refine, Auto Distort, and Smoothing to compensate for changes in the image.
4. What does the Inspection Region option do? What are the difference inspection region options for?
The Inspection Region option allows you to select the Master region to inspect against the Sample. The options are: Full Page, Trim, Shape (e.g. Cartons) with the default being Full Page. Full Page detects the entire page of the Master. Trim automatically detects the entire image on the Master. Shape (e.g. Cartons) automatically detects the largest shape on the Master.
5. What does Select dieline do?
Select dieline allows you to select a dieline for shape extraction. Click Select Dieline and pick the name.
6. Does Graphics Inspection support repeats?
7. What does Support Rotation do?
Support Rotation (under Options) enables detection of rotated/ nested samples. It is enabled by default.
8. Can Graphics Inspection compare two image files with different orientations?
Yes. Click Support Rotation under Options to compare files with different orientations.
9. Why is Graphics Inspection not finding the repeats?
They may not have the same orientation as the Master. Support Rotation (listed under Options) must be enabled when running an inspection using a sample that contains a rotated image of the Master.
10. What does Enable Overprint do?
With Enable Overprint (under Options), Graphics Inspection provides an on-screen simulation that approximates how blending and overprinting appear in color-separated output. Enable Overprint is enabled by default. When toggled on, it is applied to the inspection.
11. What is the difference between Enable Overprint under Options and the Overprint icon?
The Overprint icons at the top of the Preview panels simulates how blending and overprinting appear in color-separated output, but the simulation will not be applied to the inspection. It also re-loads the files.
