I have a file with a number of artboards on which there are objetcs filled with 100% Magenta and some with 100% Magenta and 0,34% Yellow. I want to get rid of that 0,34% but Illy is refusing to cooperate.
Even selecting just two or three objects and trying to recolor using the Edit/Edit colors/Recolor Artwork dialog has no effect. I can change the color manually though, for one or more selected objects.
Recolor artowrk will make as small a change as up to 2 decimal places.
Check your document color mode, you may for exampel be in RGB and doing chanegs in CMYK, and that would give you such a result.
If you need further help, please attach a screenshot showing the values and settings you are using, before and after.
Make suere recolro art is checked.
Thanks for looking into this, Mike.
Document color mode is CMYK.
I've tried it with your example, and for me recolor only works for a Y value of at least 0,58%. If I choose any value below that and there is no change.
What is very odd is that the cutoff point changes depending on what color you are trying to change. In the example below, with 100% magenta, the magical value seems to be 0,56%. Anything below that does not get recolored.
It gets even more bizarre: a few examples
If I try to change C0,55 M100 Y0,55 K0 into C0 M100 Y0 K0 nothing happens.
Trying to change C0,55 M100 Y0,55 K0,55 into C0 M100 Y0 K0 works perfectly.
But trying to change C0,55 M100 Y0,55 K0,25 into C0 M100 Y0 K0 results in C0 M100 Y0 K0,25!
What on earth is going on?
