When I rename the colour PerfCutContour and change it to Spot, the components still read 100% Cyan. Therefore Versaworks does not read it as a PerfCutContour but just the colour Cyan.
If the color is correctly named and truly is a spot color then I guess VersaWorks should also recognize it as such, no matter what color it is built up from.Do you use PDF to send it to VersaWorks?If so, make sure "Native" is selected under the Color tab in the export settings, and "Convert spot colors to" is unchecked.
Versaworks still doesn't recognise PerfCutContour.
If you use PDF to send to VersaWorks, reimport the PDF to Draw and check to see whether the PerCutContour is still a spot, or if it has been converted to CMYK or RGB for some reason.Attached is a PDF where the outline is a spot color created to work with VersaWorks (I hope).Check to see what happens.If it works, you should be able to import the PDF to Draw and then drag the outline color to your Roland palette for future use.
Tried the pdf in Versaworks PerfCutContour worked perfect, imported pdf to draw dragged outline color to Roland pallette, tried again in Versaworks solid line not a PerfCutContour. Dragged PerfCutContour says components 100% Cyan.
Make sure in you colour settings that Import & Paste are set to Use Embeded Profile.
