Hi, I'm trying to output a file to a PDF to go to print.

In the original document, the text is set to 100% black, and there is a grey box which is at 40% black.

When I output it my print man is telling me that the text is being converted to RGB and is say, 80%R, 80%G, 80%B ... this will lead to haloing as the text is quite small in places (6pt).

I am using Corel X6 - is there something I am doing wrong here, any help would be most appreciated...

This guide to creating PDFs for a printshop is for an old version of CorelDraw (v12)
I only have X4 myself, but many of the principals mentioned, still apply.

I know the postscript option is for fine print ... I don't know if that will help in your case.

If you don't get an answer here you could try posting a question in the Corel Community

Unfortunately that didn't help, I'll perhaps try exporting as Postscript ...

I presume jbromley does not really intend to close to this question without awarding points.
My EPS suggestion was described as "Very helpful"

Very helpful, I ended up outputting as EPS which did the trick in the end.
