Using Special Colors

This section explains how to use special colors.

Special Color Settings is a function that detects the specific colors in a job by color value (RGB or CMYK) and replaces them with color values defined in VersaWorks. This function is similar to converting a spot color to a process color with the only difference being that spot colors are recognized by name while special colors are recognized by color value. To use special colors in VersaWorks, you must register a color (input color) that you want to use as a special color and the color (output color) after replacement. When using the special colors registered in VersaWorks in an application, you will be able to print the closest matching color with the color defined as the output color. However, VersaWorks can only recognize special colors in vector data. Colors used in raster data such as bitmap images cannot be recognized.
