COR-3006 • Corel X3 does not import a second white color


Corel X3 has a bug that does not allow an imported file that has two colors of different names but the same color value to import both colors. Corel drops the second color.

Example, an EPS file according to Corel X3 can not have two spot color yellows if their color values are the same, but their names are different. Obviously that is wrong.


Corel fixed this but in versions X4 and X5.

Quick fix is to change the color value of one of the colors. Example, in Separation Studio double click the Final White color swatch in the VueRite window and change its value to an off white. Save the file and import it again into Corel Draw.

Better fix: Download a free trial of X5 from the Corel website then upgrade.
