Hi Alberto,

I can confirm this. However, it can depend on what is attached to the 
Docutech. The printer itself is only printer. There are various RIPs 
that can be connected to this machine. For instance, we have here a CREO 
Spire CXP5000 attached to a Docutech 5252. We can accept both RGB and 
CMYK files.

I can offer to output one page of each settings (that is, 2 pages), as a 
test. You can send me your PDF off list. At least we?ll know it that 
makes a difference. If the devels want me to try something else, then 
don't hesitate to write.

I hope that helps.
