Default Publisher 2003/Seperations

Sorry if this is a duplicate (first posting did not
appear)...

I have just upgraded to Pub 2003 (w/Office 2003). After
finishing a 16-page newsletter (2-color (spot color)) I
discovered that Pub 2003 won't print seperations unless
you have a postscript2 printer! All previous versions of
Publisher printed seperations with no problems on any
printer I chose.

Checked MS Knowledge Base and found article # 825781
which addresses this problem (due to CMYK being selected
in the printer advanced print settings window)but the
resolution does not work (this option was not selected on
my system).

Anyone have a work-around or resolution that does work?

I am hoping that I do not have to chuck Pub 2003 in favor
of re-installing Pub XP.

Thanks for any help given!

Or you could install PagePlus 9.0 whom don't do things like that or would immediately address the problem if they did.
If you think MS cares a damn, you are suffering grand delusions.
There is NO quality control at MS.

That is correct.

This KB relates to something a tad different than your question, so this
kb will not work with your issue.

The composite CMYK output in 2003 is designed so that would match the
separations made directly from Publisher. Publisher 2003 has since changed
it's build so that separations were on the same printing path as composite
CMYK. As you have found, PS1, inkjets, etc are no longer supported. This
will affect very few people as commercial printers are encouraged to use
PS2 or better drivers, and Publisher can now take advantage of the advanced
PS2/3 feature set.
I am hoping that I do not have to chuck Pub 2003 in favor of
re-installing Pub XP.


Unfortunately, you will have to if you need this feature to work as it
did in the past for you, or use a PS2 supported printer. If I learn of
any workarounds, I will keep you posted. --
