I have Coreldraw 2018 - and sent files to printers every day as PDFs as like every printer requests.
But those jobs that require a CUSTOM SPOT COLOR - (which I have created a custom pallet with ie: spot gloss, scodix, CutContur etc)
Anything that has the custom spot in it DOES NOT work in the PDF - when setting "save color as" to "NATIVE"
IT WORKS WITH PANTONE COLORS BUT NOT WITH CUSTOM SPOT COLORS
I have been using CorelDraw since x3 - and still isn't fixed
My get-around is to SAVE AS a illustrator file, OPEN in Illustrator and then SAVE AS pdf. - been doing for years.
I see a lot of people saying same thing but no simple fix -
SHOULDN'T IT BE AS SIMPLE AS SELECTING A PANTONE COLOR OR YOUR OWN CUSTOM SPOT COLOR
SAVE AS PDF AS "NATIVE" AND PRESTO????????
ANYONE WITH A FIX - tried everything! - or just change to Illustrator as 90% of my work goes to offset printers.
