No Trap Level setting defines the amount of ink that can be considered as white for the purposes of
trap condition calculation.
Dark and Light Ink Percentages are settings used to apply color reduction during the calculation of
the trap color, explained above.
Black Special Case rules are applied to multi-black colors or spot colors that can be treated as
black if desired. This rule implies that trap direction is always into the black object as it should
define the visual edge of the color boundary. The rule depends on the definition of solid black ink
specified by the black density level and black color limit (black percentage) settings.
Black density indicates the neutral density at or above which the trapping engine considers an
ink to be black. If you want to specify a spot ink to be black, its neutral density should be equal or
greater than the black density. An ink treated as Black will cause the Black special rule application
if the amount of such ink is greater or equal to the value defined by the Black percentage parameter.
Image trapping rules contain a set of parameters that control Internal image trapping, Image-to-LineWork
trapping direction, special Black case and special Yellow case. The special image Yellow case is applied
when the Yellow percentage is non-zero and the rules are defined in the user manual.
Miter Trapping is an option to create better looking traps at corners of the objects.
Fine elements is an option that works only when Miter Trapping is On. It causes the trap width to
adjust to the narrow shapes.
It should be noted that both the miter trapping and fine elements options require longer
times for job processing (up to 30% increase for complex pages).
The Traps highlight is a handy option that allows the user to see traps generated by
the TaskForce I-Trap ™ plugin in one of RGB pure colors using the I-Trap Viewer tool. In this case,
it is recommended to increase the trap brush width. If none is selected, the trap color will be generated.
