Adobe InDesign/in Design printing

Question
Running Adobe inDesign CS 6.0 on iMac 10.8.2  When printing on a non-color printer for color separations to be offset printed, how can I make the color pages print in black?

Answer
Hi Howard,

I don't think it can be done, try looking in the output section of the print dialog box to see if you can alter the inks. Also, check with your printer to see if they'll accept a native InDesign file or pdf.

I don't know of anyone who still uses film for platemaking who might need a job separated this way.

Best of luck,

Adobe InDesign
