I am trying to print color separations and haven't had a problem until now. The selection isn't available anymore! I'm not sure what to do now.

Yeah, I've found out it is a Big Sur OS situation. I don't have print upgrades for any of my printers that are only a couple of years old (and they are already going to Monterey?!?) So I had to downgrade one of my computers back to Catalina to be able to get the full print driver capabilities.

And if you then change the  Mode from Composite to Separations (Host-Based)?
