    Default Named Colors removes '_' from name

    Hi All,

    I've been using Xara for over a decade - love the software.

    Just purchased a new Roland BN-20 printer/cutter with a white channel.

    To send white channel information to Roland VersaWorks I need a spot color called RDG_WHITE

    Have run into a bit of an issue with Xara, the color edit process replaces '_' with a space ' ' which is then not recognized as the white channel in VersaWorks.

    Has anyone else run into this problem and/or has a work around/solution? I really don't want to go to Coral Draw or AI...

    Thanks

    DK

    Welcome to TalkGraphics DK. I have no idea but check back. I am certain there will be some solutions.

    You are saying the underscore is being replaced with a dash?

    DK, try with RDG&_WHITE.

    The Spot Colour than presents as
    RDG_WHITE.

    No guarantees.

    Thanks mate - sorry - just edited the above.

    When I name a color:

    RDG_WHITE

    Xara will replace the _ with a space and give me:

    RDG WHITE

    I've dived into the text of a simple .PS file export and confirmed the spot color is being exported without the '_'

    Cheers

    Hi Acorn,

    Thank you for that excellent suggestion.

    In Xara itself the color is now appears to be named RDG_WHITE, however looking at the EPS/AI file text the color name on export is now RDG@ WHITE

    Seems like I might be stuck.

    Cheers

    @DK, any chance you can search and replace the output in a text editor?

    I had thought about that one - but Roland VersaWorks crashes on opening a EPS I hand modify - that would have be an easy Python script if it worked...

    Cheers
