  1. I reported this times ago, but it isn’t fixed: 1. Create a red (c=0, m=100, y=100, k=0) element. 2. Create two color swatches: c=0, m=0, y=0, k=100, overprint=on, swatch name: „overprint" c=0, m=0, y=0, k=100, overprint=off, swatch name: „knockout" Assign each black color to a different object. 3. Place the two black element so, that they overlap the red element. 4. Now select one black element after the other: The color won’t be selected correctly in the swatches panes. Obviously, the color is defined only by its color values, not by the swatch name. 5. Now select the red element – it will be selected correctly. That means: There is no way to check the correct allocation of different blacks to different elements within Publisher. You have to check it using an extern PDF application like Acrobat Pro. Why is it important, to define two different k=100 blacks? Simply because it makes sense to assign these different blacks to different elements: Overprinting black to body text, knockout black to bigger black elements. Here a short older screencast demonstrating the issue: I have attached a sample file to demonstrate the issue. different-blacks.afpub
