I am a CorelDraw newbie and have been working on a few t-shirt designs. I plan on using medium to dark colored shirts and want to use white, however, when I output the file, white is transparent. I was told to used RGB for the output and white is set as (255, 255, 255). How do I get the white output?
Any help is appreciated.

Thanks for the reply. I plan on using screen printing. When I talked to the screen print shop they mentioned that I need to use the RGB. I am using X3. I don't find a specific palette called PMS - I am thinking this is a Pantone color. Is that correct?

In reply to Hunter:
MK, I agree with Foster and Hunter............It seems very, very odd for your screenprinter to be asking for RGB.
Are you sure he's/she's planning to actually screenprint and not use a DTG printer?
Anyway, to open a Pantone Spot palette (with printable white) in X3, go up to Window/Color Palettes and put a checkmark in front of a Pantone palette. I use the solid coated palette.
This is what I do for a living. Create artwork/seps for screenprinters.
I really do think you should contact your printer and review................something certainly doesn't sound right.

Thanks to all, this is making more sense. Would I be correct to assume that if my design only has two colors that I would only have two seps (is there a way to check how many different colors there are before exporting)? If I output to EPS, then the file will contain both seps - is this the best method (the file is very large)?

Yes, if only 2 spot colors (and their tints) are used in the document, 2 seps will result.

You should only see 2 plates being used in the separations tab.

I'd provide the original working file also, it probably won't be too large.
NOTE: EPS's will often ZIP down to a much smaller file size.
