|0002705||Scribus||Printing||public||2005-10-10 01:42||2005-10-15 19:42|
|Platform||Sun Ultra 5||OS||Gentoo Linux||OS Version||126.96.36.199|
|Fixed in Version||1.3.2cvs|
|Summary||0002705: Spot Color Seperations are not working|
|Description||I set up a new document created a new spot color I called it Reflex Blue|
and I selected spot color. Ok so now I have a Reflex Blue Color.
I layout a document and I set the Header Text of the document to tje New Reflex Blue Color, and I type in some body copy and use Black. I output my document using the seperations and select the individual color of Reflex Blue.
When my document prints It prints Both the Reflex Spot Color as well as the Black specified body copy. These shoould be outputting on seperate sheets.
I am outputing to a HP 5000 Postscript Platemaker.
|Steps To Reproduce||Steps are as stated above.|
|Additional Information||There also needs to be the ability to print crop marks as well as the name of the seperation on the outputs the name should be outside of the crop marks.|
colorbars are also needed when doing cmky for full size color press sheets if I was to be printing on a Kamori or Heidleberg 4 Color Press. I think Scribus is a great program but still needs some work before it can be used in full production. I haven't yet tried to load a eps file with spot colors or a Tagged TIF file for testing. But I hope to be able to do this in the future.

I don't know about the separations issue - Franz will hopefully be able to take a look at that.
With regards to crop marks and colour bars, they're a long standing request and they do need to be added. It's simply a matter of time and priorities. A large proportion of commercial printing doesn't require crop marks or colour bars - modern RIPs will add them to the printer's exact specifications. I think it's really only when doing direct separations (a very new feature in Scribus) that colour bars and crop marks become crucial.
Also, please do remember that 1.3.x is the development series. There's a lot of work going on in it that can sometimes result in problems, and there are some known issues that are still to be addressed.
|I think this was fixed quite recently in cvs. My tests indicated spot colors applied to text was working OK with 5 or 6 separate plates. e.g. CMYK + 2 spots.|
"I haven't yet tried to load a eps file with spot colors"
A lot depends on your version of Ghostscript. If you are serious about importing spot colors with EPS, please use GS 8.51+
