17. Printing and Outputting a Document > Previewing Color Separations

Previewing Color Separations

Color separations divide content into four plates by color, known as process colors. Each plate represents a CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black) color. The Separations Preview panel allows you to preview color separations on your screen. As you move your cursor around the page, the panel displays an ink percentage usage for the item next to each plate. In the panel, you can use the Visibility column to show and hide different separation color inks to preview your content on the page. Printers have ink limits, typically 300%. You can use the panel to check ink limits to make sure you have not exceeded them.
