Markzware FlightCheck 7.5 Mac Ground Controls:
Trapping Frame/Line

Examples of Trap, Knockout and Overprint for Screen Printing
All Trapping settings under Frame/Line deal with the color of a frame or a line.
Frames can only be found on text or image containers, whereas lines exist as separate objects.

Overprint – This Ground Control triggers if a frame or line color is set to overprint. Setting frames and lines to overprint may cause them to blend into the background and disappear.

Knockout – This Ground Control triggers if a frame or line color is set to knockout. If frames and lines are set to knockout, paper may show through in areas where you expect color to appear.

Auto – In QuarkXPress, you can set a default value in the Preferences for Auto Amount. By default, this value is 0.144 points. Whatever the value you set, this Ground Control triggers if a color used in a frame or a line is set to either:

  • Auto Amount (+)
    or
  • Auto Amount (-).

Custom – This Ground Control will trigger if the color used in a frame or line has been set to Custom.

FlightCheck can warn you if Frame/Line trapping is set to overprint, knockout,
Auto Amount + or -, Custom in QuarkXPress, plus more.
