Spot Colours not imported or printable.

Recommended Posts

It seems that Spot Colours in eps files are not supported...

If I import/place an eps file with spot colours defined, these spot colours aren't imported into the swatches panel.

If I select "Create Palette From Document > As Document Palette" I get a whole list of colours, none of them actually appear on the page. If you want to delete this palette, this doesn't work: Select Delete Palette from the Swatches Drop down menu, a pane appears asking you to confirm that you want to delete the palette, click "Yes" and thePalete is still there.

The eps file seems to have been converted to a CMYK object because if you export the page as a pdf with "Honour Spot Colours" ticked it outputs the spot colours as cmyk. So you can't print separations from the pdf file.

It seems that spot colours in PDFs are also not supported. I've created a PDF in AD with Pantone 485C. It separates fine in InDesign but APub treats it as CMYK. I don't know if this is a bug or just something that hasn't been implemented yet.
