I've asked a similar question in the past but still experience the same problems when converting files to PDF.
The 'mast head' is a monotone bitmap filled with PANTONE 032. When I attempt to create a pdf using the settings above (convert all colours to greyscale and leave spot colours alone) I get the rather strange appearance of the PDF with the unusal spot plates of Blue, Green and Red?
I need to create 2 plates ultimately as these magazines are printed in black only with spot colour (032) on the front page only and I'm struggling with the results I'm getting.
Cheers in advance
Hi John.Seems to work as expected here, without RGB plates.Looks to me as if the bitmap has two colors, the red and something more.Can you post or upload a zipped CDR with the bitmap (or entire file)?

Think the mast head logo is coming in as RGB rather than monotone? If I place the logo into a page on its own all works fine? There's some kind of reaction to the other elements in the page
I didn't see your Pantone in the bottom palette. Add the Pantone to the palette. Use it to color the top bitmap. Then try your export again.
Edit: I just added from text in the footer...
Hi Mike,Not sure what you mean by 'bottom palette'?
Is this what you refer to?
