Mac suite- document mistakes

We were given an InDesign document to look at and in small groups find 8 mistakes based on the things that we have learned over the previous session. Mistakes including colour, images etc.

1st mistake:
Ink limit on the last page on the text 'back cover' is over the limit. This is because the registration has been changed to black.
2nd mistake:
Two of the pantone colour swatches haven't been used within the document

3rd mistake:
The light blue swatch is an RGB colour swatch

4th mistake:
One of the images within the document has a missing link and has not been saved previously
5th mistake:
Another image has been scaled down when brought onto InDesign to 15% meaning the DPI is now close to 2000 instead of 300

6th mistake:
Another image 'bird 5' has only 72 DPI instead of the desire 300

7th mistake:
The background on the front page doesn't have bleed

To edit an image that has been used on InDesign easily, go on 'get info' and change the option 'open with' to photoshop so that it takes you straight to Photoshop when you edit it through InDesign.

A quick way to see what mistakes are made within a document you can select, File and package and this will produce a summary for you with the issues raised on the document.

You can also choose the links and images option and this will show you what colours have been used and details of them etc.
