Using Acrobat to create trap zones
For the purpose of this example we will demonstrate with the zone trapping tool for Acrobat.
Please see the links page for information on obtaining this tool. Lucid kindly acknowledges
the copyright of Agfa Corporation of this tool and is only showing it for informational purposes.
Figure 1 shows
the main windows of the zone trapping plugin for Acrobat in the foreground
along with a document showing three trap areas, one of which is highlighted.
The basic usage
is to enable the preference options in the left panel and dismiss them.
Using the trap zone creation tools you can then click or draw the trap
zones. Using the zone settings floating pallette you can then set the
parameters of the zones. Once the zones are created then the job is ready
to be printed to the rip.
