I created a design file in Corel X7 and I used some pantone color in that. After doing the design and saving that, when i open the file again some Pantones turn to BLACK!
What must i do to see my Pantone colors again?
I feel this question will be asked a lot or searched a lot but there are no solutions.
I've done a lot of testing every time I've encountered this issue.
Try your best not to use the document palette. I've trialed this out and encountered no issues; try and stick to the Pantone swatch only and ignore the document palette.
There's no easy way to restore the colour back to original unless you click on the object to find out what the colour was.
Try your best to keep your eye out on these changes.
this problem only happens if you use an old Pantone palette on a newest version. Using the current version of Pantone colors solve the problem
I'm using the latest Palette on the most recent version of CorelDraw and found the problem occurs from the document palette.
There's proof to back up this as if you use a macro to remove all swatches from the document palette all those document colours that were used will change to black on the artwork.
you mention the PMS 186 C, PMS (Pantone matching system) is no longer used since a lot of years
My mistake! I was using it as an example.
Talking about the Solid Coated Swatch
These issues usually exist in files from older version of Draw and specifically when using custom spot color palettes.
