When versioned white objects are designed to be seen on top of another colored object, the colors that make up the colored object must be extracted in the version plan. (Versioned white objects are white objects that do not appear on all versions.)
For example, with the following objects (white text on cyan boxes) in your files, you must extract cyan for each affected version in the version plan.

Background object color not extracted
If you do not extract the colors that make up the background object in the version layers, your output may not appear as intended. See the following examples.
- Force Overprint OFF
When cyan is not extracted in the version layers, you receive the following results when the Force Overprint check box is cleared:
Versioned white objects: Force Overprint OFF
The white objects are included on the 'common' layer in Acrobat so that you can see them.
- Force Overprint ON
When cyan is not extracted in the version layers, you receive the following results when the Force Overprint check box is selected:
Versioned White objects: Force Overprint ON
The Detect versioned white objects option in the Generate process template enables you to identify white objects on a change layer, and mark them with an orange X. A warning is issued if a white object is detected on a change layer so that the extracted colors can be changed.
- Select Warn to issue a warning if a white object is detected on a change layer so that the extracted colors can be changed.
- Select Warn and Mark to issue a warning if a white object is detected on a layer so that the extracted colors can be changed, and to mark the bounding box of the white object in the change layer with an orange X.
- Select Ignore to cancel the detection process.
Note: If you select the Warn and Mark option, when you output the job, you can decide not to output the change layers that contain such X-marked white objects. To do so, in the loose page output, imposition output, or final output process template, in the Render section, select the Restrict output of layers/versions with errors check box.
