Sets the separation info of the current open page.
The parameter Handle must be a valid handle of a Separation color space.
In high-end printing workflows, pages are ultimately produced as sets of separations, one per colorant. Ordinarily, each page in a PDF file is treated as a composite page that paints graphics objects using all the process colorants and perhaps some spot colorants as well. In other words, all separations for a page are generated from a single PDF description of that page.
In some workflows, however, pages are pre-separated before generating the PDF file. In a pre- separated PDF file, the separations for a page are described as separate page objects, each painting only a single colorant (usually specified in the DeviceGray color space). When this is done, additional information is needed to identify the actual colorant associated with each separation and to group together the page objects representing all the separations for a given page. This information is contained in the separation info of each page object.
