I have a file submitted to me that has been mangled by another designer. A PANTONE named spot color has been changed to a process color in the Swatches panel. When I try to change it back to "spot", a pop up window appears to say "Cannot edit this color property".
Are there any suggestions to get this to spot?
I've gone through the placed EPS/AI/PDF files to make sure that the named color in those are truly the spot color and not a process color.
I'm using ID CS 5.5.
Add the proper spot color and delete the process one.
You’ll be prompted to replace objects with the process color. Choose the spot.
Thanks. I tried that and got some other error about making duplicate named swatches.
I eventually fixed it by exporting and reopening the IDML.
