The setting i used for a color overlay (from 2009) based on a pdf

Graphic Options = basic

there is an IBM doc on color overlays that is very helpful

I'm still on exactly the same InfoPrint driver as I was on from the first overlay I ever created: Generic InfoPrint 300dpi AFP.

None of this makes any sense.

Photographic dither seems to change the easy-on-the-eyes greenbar pattern into an eye-popping neon cyan.

Changing the compression to LZW got rid of what had appeared to be scaling artifact: the type looks clean, and the rules no longer disappear (the helptext for the driver tells me about settings I can't find to save my life, including turning compression off completely!)

BUT FOR SOME REASON, THE OVERLAY IS STILL COMING OUT 5% TOO BIG ON THE PDFS!
