Hello Peter ,

Going back to the theme of importing images, I tried to import some TIF and
EPS with Spot Colors , the color names showed up in the color pallete but
not apeared in the preview image as additional colors, everithing was
converted to CMYK, how is going on the support to Special Colors ?
Does SCRIBUS  import TIF additional channeles or we had to use

Regards to ALL of SCRIBUS team .
