I’d like to edit this applescript so the crop marks created have a white keyline. Some of the artworks created here have a large bleed area and those with dark background cause the crop marks to vanish.
Can anyone help? I tried looking at the script but I am clueless!
Your proposed solution is something of a no-no; marks should be registration colored. Use the offset property to extend the marks beyond the bleed.
If your talking about the script that is here
Macintosh HD:Applications:Adobe InDesign CS4:Scripts:Scripts Panel:Samples:AppleScript:CropMarks.applescript
then change this line
set myRegColor to swatch “Registration” of myDocument
set myRegColor to swatch “Paper” of myDocument
or as Marc has pointed out, just change the offset value
Thanks for the replies. I think changing the offset is the best way forward with this, I thought it was a strange request. But I try to humour the studio boss sometimes.
