    identify transparency effect in pitstop

    Hi there,

    I have a question for Enfocus Pitstop. In Inspector it is possible to add a new transparency effect to an object. That's fine.

    But how to identify and modify an existing transparency effect? When I have a PDF from InDesign with an existing transparency effect e.g. "multiply" or "hard light" or so on. Then I can't identify which effect was used exactly in InDesign. I only can add some new effects to an object. But if it's "multiply", "hard light" or something else I can't see in Pitstop. Often I want to know which effect was used in PDFs, that I don't created by myself. Is this possible?

    Best regards

    - To find transparency objects you can create a preflight profile and run it then browse through navigator.
    - while object is selected you can look at inspector, first tab (fill and stroke) in left panel there are some icon, transparent is first or second from bottom.
    Sometimes we need select thing called FORM under object but not object.
    Im on mobile so dont remember exactly.

    Many thanks for your answer. Yes, you are right. First from bottom is Fill an Stroke - Transparency. It's wellknown. But here is always and anytime "Normal" showing at "Selecting Blending". It's possible to add a new blending to an object but not to look what blending already existing. I tested several real blendings from InDesign without success. I looked at object and form.

    its very easy WITHOUT pitstop:

    simply use the output preview from acrobat pro. switch to obejct inspector and click the desired object. it will show the current blending mode you are looking for!
