BACKGROUND - FOR ISSUE SKIP TO PARAGRAPH 2 - Greetings. I am using Preps 5.3 with Rampage 10.4 and am having an issue with the Preps mark Platenames_9x_rot90.eps I am new to this shop and came from a Rampage 9.4 environment also with Preps 5.3, however that shop had an Agfa Palladio with Print Drive that was set to image each plate with the plate name, info, date, time and separation. The new shop has a Screen Plate Rite 4100 and so I must put a flat text identifier on each plate manually prior to imaging.

The problem is that sometimes, even with the separation info (Platenames_9x_rot90.eps) file provided by Preps it doesn't show on the plates. At first I thought it was a PS3 Preps 4.2 error from OS 9 so I upgraded to 5.3 on OS X. Then I thought it was the fact that it was rotated 90 degrees, so I switched to the "Platenames9x.eps' file. Now I think it has something to do with spot colors. It images sometimes without issue, and other times it doesn't... seems to be random I can't narrow down a common issue. Sometimes I will tell it to image on both sides and it will only image one side. One one job (PANTONE 128 C and Black) it imaged PANTONE 128 C and Black on one side, and PANTONE 128 C with no Black on the other. The art is fine - it's just the identifier mark. Sometimes in a job with multiple CMYK will image the CMYK on one form and not another within the same run. Anyone else have this issue? How to fix?

While I appreciate the plethora of replies and all the people who took time to respond, it looks as though the problem is solved merely by selecting "Bring to Front."
