Hi Theo,

As far as I can tell, this isn't possible as a setting.
A workaround to consider would be the following. With some playing
around, I see that when an object is set for overprinting, a variable
appears in the description of the <PAGEOBJECT>, called doOverprint="1".
So the workaround would be to edit the SLA file in a plain text editor
(like Notepad for example), and do a Search and Replace,



doOverprint="1" gXpos=

It's a bit clumsy perhaps, but should be effective.
