    Density of spot colors should be exported correctly to PDF in CMYK mode

    tf-dtp Level 1

      I want to use a spot color like Pantone that will be exported to a different plate from CMYK in the PDF file. Generally that works, when I export the FrameMaker document tuo PDF and select to export it as PDF.

      BUT:

      If I assign e.g. 50% density of the defined spot color to an object, it appears also with an opacity of 100% in the PDF. This happens also, if i define an extra color with 50% of the spot color.

      (see attachments)

       

      In RGB the colors are exported correctly, but that cannot be used for the further print process (CMYK + 1 spot color / or black + spot color)
