I just experienced some color issues between corel draw nodes, example is an art work with pms value 186 c red..., on the origin computer where the file was originally generated in corel draw the file opens correct with the right PMS 186 c value and it displays on screen as correct red , however on the other 2 computers the color becomes transparent with a color ID - 100% ID:19 Density:100 and appears black under color palette while the text itself with the color assigned appears transparent, where is should be red (PMS 186 C).
This is a complete mess I have never ever experienced any problems of that kind since working with draw version 3.., , the file I describe is simple - 3 signs with red text..., lol how can I rely on corel package when I am unable to manage a file with 2 damn colors...., we've had a similar issue in the past where we printed 2 illuminated sign faces size 60" x 144" incorrectly, whre black turned onto white...,
I am sorry if I am asking too much but from a designer point of view this is simply ridiculous,what has happened to a bullet proof design package ??..., when we can not manage correctly single file with 2 colors how can I rely on anything else from corel draw considering already all the important detailsI have to watch for like trapping, spelling , sizes, color accuracy ect..... now what?? I have to reassure myself that the color I assigned will actually work on the next computer ......
Has anyone else come across similar problems ?? if so would you mind sharing your solution...
Just wanted to add , I just ran some tests, the same file when text converted to curves and over saved opens just fine the color displays as correct red,
when the text remains as font the problem persist.
Hello andrew; It sounds to me like the two computers are not setup the same way. You may have to get someone to come in and calibrate the two systems with the printer for you.
My Thoughts, George
they are calibrated the same way , same color profiles same fonts same color pallets ...
Are all of the computers using 16.3? Do they all have that particular palette installed? [edit: sorry, I see now that you mentioned that you do]
Could you attach a file? If I can reproduce it here, I can have the issue logged.
Here is the file,
as mentioned before when I convert the text to curves it opens fine on other computers when I lave the file with text as fonts the problem reappears...
here is the file,
also after re-reading all the responses, I am using a custom pallet , but by all means if my pallet displays a PMS 186 C what difference would that make
in default pantone pallet and my custom pallet ?, why is the font itself playing a role in how corel adopts the color.......
thanks for all the help.
