Insufficient Memory to rasterize a transparent...

    I have a customer running: iMac OS 10.5.8 (4GB Ram) using Quark 8.1.6

    When printing or creating a postscript, he gets the warning:

    Insufficient Memory to rasterize transparent a transparent element. Reduce the flattening resolution in your output settings and try again...

    If he keeps it to 1 or 2 elements, it goes. However, any more and he gets it. Trans flattener is set to default 300.

    It's physically impossible as a designer to either limit and or proof each time these elements are used. I went thru his preferences and didn't see anything unusual...

    Anyone seen this or have any ideas? He doesn't remember, but he did do an OS patch recently and it seems to correlate around it...

    Quark TS didn't do anything

    Thanks, rog50

    We have been, but they are of no help...

    I just found out today that this problem is crossplatform...

    Q thingy I guess....

    Will the iMac accept more than 4GB RAM? It sounds like that's your bottleneck. Especially since it works when there are fewer elements.
