How do I convert black line art (TIFF files) to spot color in InDesign? I import the TIFF into the box and then cannot find a way to change the black to color. Would really appreciate help on this! Thank you.
If indeed your image is a .TIF file then all you have to do is to click on it with the direct selection tool (the second icon in the tools palette (you can also click A), then go to the color fill tool and apply any color to it.
In the same way you can convert a color TIF image to any spot color or gray.
you can recolour a standard tiff in Indesign. but it must be saved as a greyscale tiff. as mentioned once imported to Indesign select the image with white arrow tool and you can recolour it with a colour from your swatches.
Interesting problem, Furry. I believe that what you are seeing are “Replies.” However, there is no visual indication, so it’s confusing. The replies are supposed to be indented. Hm. Will have to inquire what is going wrong.
