Is there a way to set the Side Guide color to 75% Black only instead of Registration?

If you do figure out how to change it from 'Registration' you'll want to set it you a new color called 'Side Guide' instead of Black as you won't be able to change it (in Workshop/Set Separations) for those jobs that don't print a black ink.

You have to edit the prepc.ps file

More detailed info is here (https://ecentral.kodak.com/eCentral/Self_Support/Knowledgebase/knowledgebase.asp?redirect=/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBCGI.EXE/,/?St=44,E=0000000000000718972,K=7913,Sxi=16,Problem =39411,remove=case,VARSET_Browse=True&page=problem)

In Preps 6, I think, editing SideGuideLong.eps and SideGuideShort.eps as well as their respective pdfs should do the same trick

Bowner is correct editing the prepc.ps file will take care of this. Although the linked to article mentions an older file (Preps v4) the rest of the article is correct.

THe marks for SideGuideLong.eps and SideGuideShort.eps are just another series of marks that Preps ships with they are not inherent to the side guides that Preps places.

Or make and place your own side guide marks, like we do. I use a screened mark for impressions on master shells; that way the pressman knows which way to move which piece for proper registration.
