I am trying to setup margins for my Illustrator doent, and the Separation Setup option in the file menu is greyed out. I have no idea how to make it active. I've searched the Help contents and found nothing. Thanks in advance!...

    Jill,

    The separation setup option is available only if you have selected a PostScript printer.

    If you have one of the Adobe Acrobat applications (rather than the free Reader), select Adobe PDF as your printer. That will be recognized as a PostScript device, and you'll be able to "print" seps to individual PDF files.

    Jill,

    Margins are not set in the separations dialog. You don't set margins in Illustrator as it is an illustration program, not a page layout program. But if you have the artboard set to your page size, and you turn rulers on, you can set guides to define your margins.
