I am trying to print plates via Adobe PDF print driver using InDesign. I am using two spot colors. Link to Illustrator file is OK. Windows 10.

But I get an error, see attachment.

Without the illustrator file it's impossible to tell, but it seems the image is actually CMYK, not spot colors

That said, I don't understand why the registration marks are not printing.

It appears indesign is smart enough not to include spot colors in the registration color when there are no actual spot colors on the page.

You cannot add attachments to email to the forum, but since the file is CMYK I think we've solved the problem.

Are you able to print Separations from a composite PDF? If you can, exporting toPDF instead of printing the separations from InDesign would be the preferred workflow.

I agree with Peter. With the Illustrator files missing we can't figure out the content. I would create a Zip archive with all your assets and upload it to a cloud service so we could download it.
