Using source groups
Each source group has an identification (ID) number that is used to match the source group with a corresponding target group. You can have unique ID numbers; however, if you create the color mapping table without the cmt utility and want to map several source groups to a single target group, you can use the same ID number on multiple source groups. Valid ID values are 1–127.
Each source group must be classified as one of these color spaces:
- Highlight color
- Highlight color is used when your existing documents describe color in terms of the percent to be covered and the percent to be shaded for a color number. The colors are device dependent. For example, you might have a printer that allows the use of three colors for highlighting. You could specify percent coverage and percent shading for colors 1, 2, or 3. Your printer setup would determine the actual colors.
- Standard Object Content Architecture (OCA)
- Standard OCA uses defined combinations of red, green, and blue to create: blue, red, pink, magenta, green, turquoise/cyan, and yellow. Standard OCA also defines several defaults such as white on a black medium, black on a white medium, and the same color as the medium. The medium could be, for example, paper or a display.
- GOCA pattern fill
- GOCA pattern fill defines patterns for filling areas that you might want to map to colors with a color mapping table.
You can use a color mapping table to pick specific object types to map, such as:
- Object area
- IM image data
- PTOCA data
- Page presentation space
- GOCA data
- Overlay presentation space
- BCOCA data
- IOCA data (bi-level, FS10)
- All PTOCA, GOCA, BCOCA, IOCA, FS10, and IM object data
- All objects, object areas, and presentation spaces
After you pick the color spaces and object types you want to map, you can specify exact values for the fields you want to map.
