We have a new printer with ability to print clear, gold and silver. I need to know how to setup the file for clear or gold print. If anyone can help :) Thank you.

- Use a Spot Color to fill or stroke the clear, gold or silver objects. I guess those special inks must have a particular name to be recognized by the printer or maybe they have to be a special metallic Pantone, check the printer manual. What is sure is that it has to be a spot color
- Go to menu Window > Separations Preview to see the spot colors used in the document and check the special color areas if necessary hiding the C, M, Y and K inks.
- If it's a clear transparent color superimposed, put it in another layer.
