I have created an Illustrator image that includes black text on a path.
If I print the artboard directly from Illustrator, the text prints black.
If I save as a PDF and print (same printer) the text on a path is dark grey.
There are also other elements that are black and they print as black in the PDF.
Any ideas what would cause this ... and how to fix it?
Illustrator CC on a mac
What kind of printer is this?
I suspect a desktop inkjet printer? Possibly Illustrator is set up to print all blacks as pitch dark black.
Acrobat prints what is there. And 100%K just is not pitch dark black.
Hi ... it is a Xerox VersaLink C7030 (not a production printer but not a desktop .. it's an office printer)
Is there a colour I could use that is pitch dark black?
BTW .. the text is currently hex #000000
So the Illustrator document is an RGB document?
Which options do you select when saving as a PDF?
