    Double-click the spot color's chip in the swatches panel to open the options window, there you can specify the color space and if it should behave as a spot or process color (the choices do vary between each color book).


    The corner of the chip will show a tiny black dot if it's set to output as a spot plate.

    The swatch name does not matter, and won't change as the "name with color value" option is turned off. Set the Color Type option to "Process" and your swatch will pick up the CMYK values shown in the bottom half of the window.
