    What are you exporting to? PDF, EPS?
    You have a dialogue box that pops up if its for eps, that controls a bunch of stuff. I think x3 had the same thing. You are probably converting RGB to CMYK on export...

    Try changing "output colors as:" to native. Or try exporting a PDF and see what results you get. I find anything under 8ft I prefer as a pdf, for simple viewing at the printer.

    Are you familiar with the process of calibrating your machine and verify the calibration by simply comparing known sample prints?

    I frequently export Gray eps images to my Roland VP540i. They come out really nice.
    I use what's called Cool Gray on the Pantone pallet.
    It's down around the 400's. Try printing a test print of Pantone, Cool Gray numbers 1-11 and see how those look. Should take you about 3 minutes to do.
    I'm using Corel X6.

    I have a Roland SC540 and use CorelX7. In the past all my grey colors started printing with a green tint to them. I had a tech guy come in and calibrate the printer and profiles and it went back to printing greys fine.
    I think he said it was linearization on my Roland Printer he calibrated.

    It printed fine outta corel X3...the profile on my printer shouldnt be the issue because the profiles are color calibrated inside versaworks.. It has no reflection of outside software...it printer perfect in x3 with the same versaworks profile....i think it has something to do with x6 color management and the way its exported... ive tried exporting and changing color management settings a million different ways.. it still all prints the same way.

    Heck, just upload a cdr and a pdf from both x3 and x6. Just a square with a color that you've had this issue with. I'd be happy to see what I find.

    This is odd. When I import it into corelx6 here, then back out with my own pdf setup, the colors show in the rip as the values listed in corel, mostly blacks. Your pdf on the other hand, comes out as combinations of colors. Here is my PDF.

    hmm dont understand what your saying? does my pdf show up as RGB blacks 10%-50% and a couple of spot colors(boxes) with a couple of blues? if so export it out of corel x6 as a eps.. import it into versaworks or your rip software and print it ...see if those greys are reddish ..thank you

    Always best to use Pantone colors and export for print as pdf. Just let corel pick the nearest pantone gray then publish to pdf

    I'd be happy to print it, but Onyx let's me color sample for color correction, so just looking at the color numbers from the pdf you sent me imported directly into onyx, vs my pdf (which is just your pdf, imported into corel x6, then re-exported as new pdf) the black in my pdf reads C 0 M 0 Y 0 K 100, yours reads C74.1 M68.2 Y65.1 K90.2.
    Here is a screen shot of the two pdf's compared in my rip. The one I exported is on top. I think this all stems from the corel pdf export settings still.
