Try outputting a pdf of your document. Set up your page from the printer window and print from Acrobat Reader. Also check your network connection if you are on ethernet. AppleTalk work much better in mac osx tiger vintage mini mac. I have not tested all the printer drivers yet on the new mini mac Lion. But there is less of a compatibility issue if you convert your doc to a pdf file. Hope this helps. :-}

Hi pip,
check your mac properties, if it is a PC powerchip, you may have to enable "Rosetta" in the indesign applications properties folder.
this may resolve the file print size conversion process.
Rosetta is inbuilt in mac with this type of powerchip, and when activated, works in the background..
http://www.apple.com/rosetta/ this link will give u an insight
not sure this is your answer....cheers rooboy

How to use anuscript manager for photoshop cs2


Adobe InDesign CS2 is a desktop publishing program created by Adobe.
As a predecessor to Adobe and Aldus' PageMaker, InDesign is a leading solution for creating high quality print media like that seen in brochures, magazines and professionally created documents.

While not the most current version, InDesign CS2 managed to get above average reviews that still make it a viable choice for those interested in desktop publishing.
History


In the mid 1980's a company known as Aldus literally revolutionized the way printed media was created.
Before Aldus PageMaker, big machines and printing presses were used.

This new software made the process much easier and gave developers much more creative freedom.

In 1995 Adobe purchased Aldus and changed the software's name to Adobe PageMaker.
In 2001 Adobe stopped the creation and support of PageMaker and replaced it with a totally original desktop publishing program, InDesign.

Pros

Despite a few minor issues, Adobe InDesign CS2 integrates well with their other programs.
This means that you'll be able to use other popular Adobe products such as Photoshop to help create your desktop media.

According to a MacWorld.com review, many new features and menus have been copied from competitor QuarkXPress, making InDesign much more accessible to users of its largest rival.

Another new, well-received feature is Snippets.
Snippets allow you to copy specific parts of a document or image and save it as its own file.

This makes reusing the image, effect or text much easier than before.

Cons

While InDesign CS2 offers new text capabilities, they're features that have been included in Microsoft Word for years such as anchored frames, auto correction and bullet point lists.

Some features of Photoshop, such as blending modes, are incompatible with InDesign, though compatibility is touted as a key feature in InDesign CS2.

Another compatibility disadvantage is that you can only export content to the Web using Adobe GoLive CS2 so those who use other programs such as Macromedia Dreamweaver must either purchase GoLive or go without this feature
.
Tutorials

Learning new software can be difficult.
Especially such advanced software that has as many features as Adobe InDesign CS2.

On their official website, Adobe offers many tutorials and "how to" guides for their products.
To make locating CS2 specific information even easier, enter "CS2" into the search bar at Adobe's tutorial page.

http://helpx.adobe.com/indesign/topics.html

The information provided, along with the in-program tutorials in InDesign CS2 will be enough to get you familiar with and using InDesign CS2 quickly.

Purchasing

Since InDesign CS2 is an older program no longer supported by Adobe, you cannot purchase it directly from their website.

Finding the software may be a bit tricky, which is why you may want to consider a more recent version of InDesign.

If you don't want to pay the hefty price tag associated with the most current version you'll be much more likely to find the last version.

Many websites offer the next to current version, though prices vary from $99 to over $600.

Printing from InDesign on mac text is not consistent color, some letters paler than others


Check your separations preview, (>Window>Output>Separations Preview). Most likely the colors you have set up are not correct. You will need to identify the problematic colors and address them within your swatch palette. Very common problem.

STEVE you have to print it as a tiled image. there is an update on the epson website for this issue. basicly anything over 90" you have to tile as two images split in half with no border in between if that makes sense. they explain it well in the update. when its something 120" x 36" lets say i run the set up at 36 x 60 then go to the page set up and there should be a box for tie image when you preview it again it shows the tiled image put back to back. you also have to tell it toreverse the print. i use adobe cs2 illustrator and it works well.

I need 100% black high density prints from mac and InDesign/illustrator to make film positives for screen printing. What can I do or adjust to accomplish this? Thank you


Is it a text or an image or...?
If its just a jpeg you are putting through indesign, test its 100% K value using the dropper tool and hovering over the image.
If its text, or indesign generated,make sure the fill you use is 100% black, not 50% blue, 50% black which is often the default. Again, check the final using the dropper before you export the pdf.
I'm not sure exactly what your application is, but often for screenprinting, people duplicate the image....so for instance two acetates of the same image one on top of the other to maximise the density....a friend of a friend apparently even uses 4 acetates layered up to be absolutely certain.

Opening files at correct size and quality in indesign cs2


This is from the InDesign help file.  I think it explains what you're experiencing:
    When you place a graphic, its original file is not actually copied into a document. Instead, InDesign adds a screen-resolution version of the file to the layout, so that you can view and position the graphic, and creates a link, or file path, to the original file on disk. When you export or print, InDesign uses the links to retrieve the original graphics, creating the final output from the full resolution of the originals.
    Links can help minimize the size of a document by storing graphics outside the document file. After placing a graphic, you can use it many times without significantly increasing the size of the document; you can also update all links at once.
    If the bitmap image you place is 48K or smaller, InDesign automatically embeds the full-resolution image, instead of the screen-resolution version in your layout. InDesign displays these images in the Links palette, so that you can control versions and update the file whenever you like; however, the link is not necessary for optimal output.
    Note: If you move a document to another folder or disk (for example, if you take it to a service provider), be sure you also move the linked graphics files; they are not stored inside the document. You can copy all related files automatically, using the Preflight and Package features.

Distorted image printing from InDesign to Xerox Phaser 8560


Have you tried a different driver? Most of those phaser printers have a PS driver loaded, See if there are PCL drvers for that product, and try that. I went on the Xerox.com site and they have both PS and PCL 6 and PCL 5 drivers, I believe one of those will help your problem.
Now that being said, If you are getting the stretching on other programs, then the problem is the drum motor encoder is getting contaminated with silicon lubricant from the maintenance kit. That will cause that problem, But since you are saying it is with one specific program, I suspect a different driver will correct the problem.

The pages in my booklet don't line up correctly---ahh help!!


Check the X coodinates in the upper left corner and make sure the art is placed or drawn to the guides or edges. A little more infomation would be extremely helpful.
Another thing to do is turn on the Overprint Preview. This is in the View menu. When you turn this on, you see how exactly things are placed/lining up instead of a low rez screen preview.
Are you converting a Publisher file to InDesign? If so, you will HAVE to fix this. Not an exact science. Even with the Utility, they are 2 totally different apps. InDesign will do it's best to maintain the look of the Publisher file, but Publisher was not created for high-end output, it has gotten better over the years... but it is still THE most problematic software for Printing.
