    Spot color in Illustrator file doesn't show up in InDesign either in the swatches pallete or the Ink Manager.


      I've seen a lot of questions about spot colors, but I haven't seen this one yet. I have an illustrator file with a spot color in it. When I bring it in to any new InDesign file the spot color shows up as it should. But we have an old file that has probably been worked on a lot in the past, and in that file, it doesn't show up anywhere. I've looked in Ink Manager under the Seps Preview panel, the swatches panel, and nowhere does this color show up. Has anyone ever had this problem? Is there any other options I didn't think of that I could try? Could it just be a corrupt InDesign file? This is all being done in CS6.


      Thanks in advance.
