    Default CMYK swatches from FH to that other program

    I can export a FH file to Illustrator and keep spot color swatches. Is
    there a way to keep cmyk colors in swatches panel?

    Don't export to AI.. Export to FH9. Then open with AI.

    Be aware of FH Registration color problems.

    I experimented with an FH9 file that had two spot inks and custom printer
    marks and text instructions in the FH Registration color. When opened in AI
    10, I had two registration colors. The imported Registration color printed
    to new, otherwise blank CMYK plates but not to the spot plates.

    I had to replace the FH Registration with the AI Registration. Because AI 10
    has no way to Find & Replace color in text blocks of mixed colors, I had to
    do that part manually.

    I don't know if this has improved since AI 10.

    Thanks for info. I didn't know Illustrator could open FH9 files.

    Problem is, I get message "Paste inside is approximated using clipping
    paths". So, I get my swatches but art is missing.

    I guess I am asking too much.
