I've been away from printing for many months, working on an audio project. In the meantime, I upgraded to CS4. My current problem is that I used to make separation negatives from a RGB file. Now, as far as I can tell, CS4 makes me convert to CMYK before I can make separations. Am I doing something wrong? Did CS4 hide the process as it did with some others (making it impossible to switch between 0 to 255 ink and % ink in the curve dialog for instance).

Any help is appreciated.

ps I did keep up with the messages while I was graphically inactive.
