PowerPoint Variable Color

greenspun.com : LUSENET : PosterShop Talk : One Thread

Whyisit PowerPoint blues act (print) different than other colors? The blue ranges from PowerPoint hex chart always print purple. Custom mixed colors help but will shift in intensity at 158% when printing to Encads and Mimakis. We're using both Onyx V3.5 and V4.5. Also, blended colors often print with thin lines unless we export .ppt files as windows metafiles and drop them into another page layout program. Regards, George Hollomon / TypEsthetics

Powerpoint works in RGB and this may be the problem you're seeing. We have had the thinline problem as well. We usually try a different Postscript driver and that seems to get rid of it. It also seems to be a problem on NT machines only.
