Trapping Zones

Using Acrobat to create trap zones

  Printing version

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.
