Color trapping automatically

There are two methods for color trapping automatically: always overprinting black and auto-spreading.

Always overprinting black creates a color trap by causing any object that contains 95% black or more to overprint any underlying objects. This option is useful for artwork containing a lot of black text, but it should be used with caution on artwork with a high graphics content. If the service bureau recommends a black threshold value other than 95%, adjust the threshold.

Auto-spreading creates color trapping by assigning an outline to an object that is the same color as the object's fill and having it overprint underlying objects. Auto-spreading is created for all objects in the file that meet three conditions:

• They do not already have an outline.

• They are filled with a uniform fill.

• They have not already been designated to overprint.
