Unused items left on the pasteboard increase the size of the document. While it is rare, pasteboard items can cause printing problems.
This tool deletes all items on the pasteboard—a time saver when working with multiple page documents, because each page or spread has its own pasteboard.
If items are locked, or are on a locked layer, you will see this warning message:
When using the Pen tool or when editing InDesign objects, it's possible to inadvertently leave stray points in your document. These tiny objects hold color and other attributes and can occasionally cause printing problems.
With a single click this tool removes any stray points in your document. This includes any stray points that may be locked or are on a locked layer.
The Delete stray points toosl is found in GreenLight Tools menu > Print Production Tools > Delete stray points
Overprint all Paragraph Styles ensures that all Paragraph Styles in the document are set to overprint.
Why would you want to do this?
Black ink applied to text or native InDesign objects is overprinted by default. This prevents misregistration of small black-type characters positioned over colour areas, or of colour areas outlined with black lines. However, if the black is applied at anything less than 100%, the default is for the type to knockout, potentially resulting in misregistration.
Conflicting colour profiles on placed CMYK images can cause colour numbers to change on output, resulting in unpredictable printing results. This tool will remove any attached colour profiles and reset to use the document default.
How would conflicting colour profiles end up in your document?
First, let's mention that the Document Default colour profile for CMYK images (aka CMYK Working Space) is chosen in the Edit>Colour Settings dialog.
To choose a different colour profile, the user would select Show Import Options (or hold Shift) when placing the image, click the Colour tab, and then choose from the drop down list of profiles.
So, while it's unlikely that images will have conflicting profiles (i.e. different from Document Default), it can happen.
Set Colour Profiles to default, ensures that all placed CMYK images are output with the document's Working CMYK profile.
You can keep tabs on your colour profiles using the Links panel. From the panel menu, choose Panel Options and select ICC Profile in the Show Column column.
Thereafter, you'll see the document profile listed next to the image name on the Links panel. You may need to widen this panel so you can comfortably view the information.
Throughout the course of working on a document, you may have locked certain objects so that they cannot be disturbed while working on other elements nearby.
There may come a point when you want to "do a reset" and unlock everything.
With a single click, Unlock objects in current document tool from the Print Production Tools panel will do just that—making all objects editable again. This saves you the trouble of having to do page-by-page in search of locked objects.
