Summary0012628: Spot colors invisible in the « print preview » tool
DescriptionI have a document with a spot color been used in several places (for texts and vector shapes). It is a metallic Pantone 768C which I've set up according to the documentation, « is spot color » is ticked ( [^]).

In the print preview tool, I can see all CMYK colors, but the spot color is invisible.
Here's a screenshot showing the problem : [^]

I recreated a sample page in Scribus 1.4.3 to see if the problem would occur, and it's the same.
Here's where it get strange (for me anyway) : a windows user opened that sample page, and for him, it works, as seen on this screenshot :;topic=1455.0;attach=1015 [^]

Also, it is a document which was created 4 years ago. I'm 100% sure the preview tool was working at the time, I could see the spot color.
Steps To Reproduce1 - set up a spot color
2 - on a page, place a shape using that spot color
3 - launch the «print preview» tool, in the «file» menu. Make sure « convert spot colors » is not ticked
4 - witness the lack of the spot color
Additional InformationThe attachment is the sample page for Scribus 1.4.x where the print preview works for the windows user, but not for me.

Speaking of, the ppa has been updated yesterday.
So I tested the preview, and it works fine once again.
That's great, thanks for your reactivity.
