Spot colour not possible in pdf?

Recommended Posts

At first excuse my bad english O.o

Affinity publisher is absolutely great as i can see so far. But today i recognized a problem with exporting to pdf: I had to create a pdf with a spot colour for a plotter (roland cut contour). It was not possible (equal what is selected - honor or not). Is it a bug or have i done something wrong?

Just did a test myself, made a spot colour for our cutter labeled "CutContour" (made 100% m). Exported the PDF with default settings as well as x4 settings. Checked the "more" box and "honour spot colours" was selected. The PDF did not show the spot colour and had it all in CMYK. 

I was curious if it did this with pantones, but they exported properly.
