|Summary||0015333: Color separation : print preview doesn't display spot colors|
|Description||I'm working on a document which uses a Pantone spot color (5 colors in total : CMYK + spot color).|
When I check the color separations in the print preview, I can see CMYK colors just fine, but not the spot color.
I've joined a sample and a few screenshots.
The spot color is the brownish one.
ton_direct_color_config.png : spot color configuration
ton_direct_edit.png : preview of the document
ton_direct_preview_cmjn : color separation for CMYK colors
ton_direct_preview_pantone : color separation for the spot color
I've worked on this document for a few years now, and the color separation worked juste fine previously (that is 3 years ago on Scribus 1.5-trunk).
I also recall I could see the spot color in the print preview.
Now I don't know if this is just a preview bug, or a more serious bug affecting the color separation for spot colors.
Should I be worried that the color separation will fail when we'll send the document for printing ?

Tested Linux Mint 18.3 (Ubuntu 16.04)
I not see a problem. Works well.
Here are the complete infos about my version just in case (from the "about Scribus" menu) :
>Version de Scribus 1.5.4
>28 Avril 2018
>Identifiant de compilation : C--T-F-C1.14.10-64bit
>Utilisation de Ghostscript version 9.21
I noticed that a setting is not good, please you modify:
File menu -- Document setup (or preferences... too) -- Colour management -- RGB images and RGB solid colour rows include wrong settings.
Let it be: sRGB profile and not the Monitor profile !!!
||Avoid using special characters inside spot color names. Limit yourself to alphanumeric characters, spaces and underscores.|
Thank you very much, I changed the color name and that solved the problem.
I think there should be a warning of some sort if spot color names must follow a specific convention, which doesn't seem to be the case for regular colors.
Also @PeterBenedek thanks for the advice.
