I want to start a new document for the same client/project I'm already working at. So, I copy some elements from the previous doc to the new to get a head start (colours, text styles, shapes, text) The problem is: a 100k black rectangle is colour-converted to 78c 69m 66y 82k! In the original document, this had a global colour linked to it, so I tried to export the document palette to the new document. The colour palette itself did successfully import, and its colours are right, but they are not linked/applied to the rectangle and it has the same wrong, converted color. Expected behaviour: Objects copied to another document must not colour convert if it's the same colour-mode (CMYK) global colours (document palette) already applied to an object have to be transferred automatically to the other doc palette. already existing colour names in the target document should keep the TARGETs definition (like "paste without style") I would say, this is a major bug. Please investigate!
I paste a logo with global swatches (Corporate colours that must never ever change) and the swatches don't follow into the new document. The global swatch is there "sort of" because the colour palette says my object's fill is a global swatch and I can even edit it, but I can never apply it to another object because it's not in the swatches palette anywhere. Major fail... Here's a screenshot showing the global colour in use, but no document palette or global swatches in my swatches palette.
- I create an object (eg: a logo) and apply a global swatch to it. - I test the connection by changing the swatch and I see the object's colour reflecting the swatch's colour changes. - I copy the object. - I create a new document and paste the object into it. - I have no global swatches in my new document. ...The global swatch has not followed the object into the new document. I have the same experience if I place/embed a Designer file that uses global swatches – the global swatches don't appear in my new document. I have managed to export the global swatches and import them into the new document, but then I still have to re-apply them to my pasted object. This doesn't seem right and it certainly limits the functionality of global swatches. Please can you correct this in a future update.
