Color settings

The Advanced Settings dialog box (shown in Figure 13-4) gives you the option to change the color options of your text and imported sketch images, as well as any story information and guides you want included on the page.

You have three options to choose from for each object type (though some provide only two options):

f Layer Color: The object type retains the original color information. If you want the exported file to look like you currently have it set on the page, this is the option to use. (This is also the Default option, so technically you don't need to make any adjustments.)

M* Cyan: The object type is displayed in cyan. This option can be useful if you want to visually separate certain objects (such as the title and author info or the page number) from the artwork.

f Black: The object type is displayed in black. This option can be useful if you want to force certain objects (such as the text on the page or the print guide) to be black on the exported file.

Raster settings

A Manga Studio EX function, the Detailed Raster Settings dialog box (shown in Figure 13-5) lets you adjust how layers set to 8-bit with no color subtraction (gray layers) are printed or exported.

ts Conform to the Layer Settings: The gray layer settings remain as they are.

v* Subtract Color Using the Settings Below: This option allows you to change how gray layers are displayed in the final exported image.

• Subtractive Method: You can convert the display settings for the gray layers by selecting from the drop-down list. (It doesn't subtract colors, Threshold, Dither, or Convert to Tone.)

• Threshold: If you select the Threshold Subtractive Method, you can set the threshold level by entering a value between 0 and 255 in its numeric field.

Tone settings

A Manga Studio EX function, the Detailed Tone Settings dialog box (shown in Figure 13-6) adjusts how the tone layers display either when printed or when exported to a file.

To adjust the density of either the White or Black tones you have on the page, follow these steps:

1. Select the check box of the tone you wish to adjust (the Black Tone or the White Tone check box).

2. Enter a value between -20% (to increase density) and 20% (to decrease density) in its respective text box.

V The Output Settings section adjusts how the tones are displayed when printed.

In this section, you can choose to:

• Conform to the Layer Settings: All tone layers remain as they are, depending on how you set them in the Layer Properties palette. (See Chapter 11.)

• Output All in Gray: All tone layers are displayed as gray layers, regardless of what you set in the Tone Properties.

• Output All in Tone: All tone layers are displayed as screen tones, regardless of what you set in the Layer Properties palette, (See Chapter 11.)

V The Set Number of Lines section adjusts how the tones are printed or exported.

You have two options to choose from in this section:

• Conform to the Layer Settings: The Tone Layer properties remain the same regardless of how large or small you make the page. This means that a tone layer will retain the same size and shape if it's 700 pixels wide or 3000 pixels wide.

• Adjust According to Output Resolution: The Tone Layers adjust relative to the size of the page being printed or exported.
