Any option to change from RGB to CMYK output?

Hi Folks,

Just wondering if there's any option I've missed to change the color pdf output from RGB to CMYK?

No - I am afraid we support RGB only ...
If posting files to this forum - you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded - thank you.

Best regards

No worries, thanks for letting me know John.

Given the importance of CMYK with printing houses, do you think this would be a future function you guys would look into?

Hello StuAndrews,

Just got a confirmation from the dev team that using the Core API you can handle all of CMYK/RGB/Gray colorspaces properly,
They told me that it's possible to set the colour for drawings/text as CMYK, but for now inserting images as CMYK is not so easy.

Regards,
Stefan

p.s. - apologies - just noticed that you've posted in the Clarion section of the forums, and unfortunately making the Clarion Specific templates is not as easy as we expected, so we do not know if or when those could be available, so if you want to look at the Core API - you will need to use another programming language (e.g. C++).
