Spot Colors

Spot Color mixes cyan, magenta, yellow, and black to approximate spot ink colors on a printing press.

To select Spot Color options:

  1. On the Advanced tab, click Driver.
  2. Click Spot Colors. Select an option:
    • Allow Software to Manage Spot Colors allows the PostScript driver, the printer application, or both, to control translation of spot colors into CMYK for printing. Use this setting when a special spot color is not printing the expected shade.
    • Allow Printer to Manage Spot Colors allows the printer to optimize the conversion of spot colors to CMYK for printing.
  3. Click OK.
