Use this list of keepaway settings to set the parameters of the keepaway trap.

Limitation: The Keepaway operation is available only for an object on a white background.  If the object is on any other light color background, this operation cannot be implemented.

Setting area

  • Keepaway Width: Use this parameter to set the width of the inward contraction of light color from the outside to the inside of the dark object.
  • Minimum Text Size: If the font size is greater than this parameter, it will meet the conditions for trapping and will generate a new trap. If not, then no trap will be created.

Geometry area: For an explanation of the options in this area, see the Trap Setting tab page.

Ignore area

Use these options to designate which objects are not to be included in the trapping operation.

  • External Objects: If this check box is selected, the external objects will be ignored.
