When Prinergy looks for a color definition, it uses the color library search order as specified in the Spot Color Handling section of the job's refine process template.


PANTONE colors and related suffixes

Because a PANTONE color may have different suffixes, yet still have the same recipe, Prinergy will search for the different permutations of a PANTONE color name if it cannot find an exact match. For the list of related suffixes, see the Auto-Resolve Spot Color Naming Conflicts check box description in the Spot Color Handling section of the refine process template topic.


Color search order

Prinergy performs the search by:

  1. First searching (for the exact color name) in the Job tabs of the libraries in the listed order
  2. Then searching (for the exact color name) in the Global tabs of the user libraries and factory libraries in the listed order
  3. Then, if a PANTONE color, searching for permutations of the PANTONE color name in the Job tabs of the libraries in the listed order
  4. Then, if a PANTONE color, searching for permutations of the PANTONE color name in the Global tabs of the user libraries and factory libraries in the listed order

For example, if the libraries are listed in the following order:

Listed Order

Search Order

userlib1

factorylib1

userlib2

Job tab of userlib1 (exact match)

Job tab of userlib2 (exact match)

Global tab of userlib1 (exact match)

factorylib1 (exact match)

Global tab of userlib2 (exact match)

Job tab of userlib1 (loose match)

Job tab of userlib2 (loose match)

Global tab of userlib1 (loose match)

factorylib1 (loose match)

Global tab of userlib2 (loose match)
