Map a Custom Spot to a default output Channel
In this example we want to create a color mapping which will map the spot color WIT to the White ink channel of the printer.
In our example PDF we have a spot called WIT
To create and save a Spot mapping for WIT to White channel:
- Go to Window -> Color List
- Browse to Custom Colors
- Open drop down on right hand side and select New Color Mapping and rename
- Drag and drop the White Spot color onto the WIT object in the image and confirm the mapping.
Result in Output palette: WIT of image is now 100% White and the WIT is no longer present.
Note: the manual Spot Mapping to Output Channel is an easy option for mapping existing spots in the file to an output channel. However, these can not be stored.
