New RiScript supports CMYK PDF exportPublished: 27th Dec 2007, 21:52:34 | Permalink | Printable
Free update is Christmas present for puntersA free update to PDF authoring package RiScript was released in time for Christmas this year. Version 5.04 is compatible with RISC OS 6 and can save out files in CMYK colour, which is useful for professional printing.
It can display and print in RGB colour and greyscale, export to PDF in RGB, CMYK and greyscale colour, export to drawfile format in RGB and greyscale colour, and supports PostScript 3 masked images. The new release can also embed fonts in documents and can export documents in landscape format.
The software's developers, Jeroen Medema and Roeland van den Bos, said in a statement this week: "We are pleased to announce the availability of RiScript 5.04 as a free update for RiScript 5 users.
"This version is RISC OS 6 compatible and offers a number of enhancements over the previous release. RiScript 5.04 goes a step further in colour management. You can now choose the output colour space, so you can generate PDF files with CMYK colours."
