Target Mode

The Target Mode can be set in the characterization. The mode set in the characterization is handled as a default value for all input projects using this characterization. It can then be changed in the input project. This change applies only to this project and all separation rules created from this project.

Option Description

This is the best option for most applications. The target full tone (100%) from the characterization will be preserved. Changes in the print medium used in the project will be ignored. The printed spot color will match the swatch book.

Media Relative The target color will be recalculated to simulate the print results on the print medium used in the project. The Density value can still be changed, to reflect last minute changes during the final printing process.
Custom You can enter a custom Lab or Density value as the target value for the selected color.
