Hello Telerik-Team,

we have built a report with the TelerikReportingSystem. The PDF should be for high quality printing and therefor we need the PDF in CMYK color mode. At least the fonts have to be in pure black (only one color), because of the better printing results. If you print an RGB-PDF in CMYK you can cause blurry fonts.
Is there a possibility to generate the PDF in CMYK or convert it afterwards? I guess, we are not the first, who print the generated PDFs for high quality in a printing shop.

Thanks!

Hello Christian,

Currently the report engine does not support CMYK profile when exporting to PDF and it is not in our short term plans to develop such functionality. However if we have the resources, we will have this suggestion in mind for subsequent versions of the product.

All the best,

Hello Lars,

Telerik Reporting does not support CMYK profiles and such a feature is not in our current plans. Generally, color management and color profiles are features more common to image editing applications. To prepare your documents before printing try to use additional tools to convert RGB images to CMYK.
