    Good day all,

    I'm sure this will be a relatively easy question for some of our veterans, but it has me baffled. When I get an .EPS from another designer I occasionally run into colour variances depending on what program I open it with. Generally, it looks great if I import it into Corel, but the colours are blown if I try it in Flexisign. Am I missing something very obvious in Flexi's colour settings or something? Or is my issue is that I'm spelling colour wrong so many times?

    Thanks in advance!

    Update....

    I thought it was just the colours, but upon closer inspection it looks like Flexi goofs up the outlines of some objects too. Gradients are especially bad :p

    Corel X3 and Flexi 7.6v2.

    Thought I would post a sample file as nobody's taken a crack at this one yet.

    Are you just talking about "on screen" or their shifting upon print???

    Just on screen. Which raises a good point, I'll print one out and see what happens.

    Open it in Illustrator, problem will be solved.
    I spell Colour the same way, as some customers don't know what colouer is.

    I am having a similar problem when exporting eps files out of Corel X3...

    With "Black" only....when I import the file into Flexi and print it.....all my blacks change to about 80% black in the print...(when I look at a soft proof in Flexi it is 80% black)

    Only thing I can do is go in and select each black in the design and asign a Flexi black to work around.....very dificult and time consuming w/ more elaborate designs

    I thought it was something to do w/ the export out of of Corel but no dice....

    still cant figure out wat the problem is????

    I have seen this several times when I save ILL files to older versions(8 or 10) to import into Flexi....

    My purples always turn to blues....:-(
