Add or duplicate spot colors

You can define a new full-tone spot color, or you can duplicate an existing custom or internal spot color. If your printer supports white ink, clear ink, or metallic inks, you can also define 100% color values for these ink channels.

Before you begin, check the default settings. The Preferences dialog box provides general settings that are automatically applied to new spot colors.
  1. In Color Editor: Do one of the following:
    • On the lower toolbar, click Add.

    • Right-click an existing spot color. On the lower toolbar, click Duplicate.

    • Drag a spot color from the internal spot color library to the custom spot color section.

  2. Under Spot color name, type a name.

    The name must match exactly the spot color name from the job.

  3. On the Color Definition tab, under Transparency, move the slide bar to define the degree of transparency/opacity (optional)

    The transparency setting affects overlapping colors. A transparency value of 100% means that overlapped colors can shimmer through. A transparency value of 0% equals 100% opacity and means that overlapped colors are knocked out.

  4. Do one of the following:
  5. On the toolbar, click Save.
  6. Assign the spot color table to one or more workflows.
