That's great to hear. Could you please post what the fix was, for anyone else who might have a similar problem and see this thread?

I am a not a Support engineer, and this forum is not a substitute for Support. My participation on this forum is primarily as a fellow user (and a forum moderator). I am happy to provide help and answers to questions when I can; however, there is no guarantee that I, or anyone else on this forum, will be able to answer all questions or fix any problems. If I ask for files to clarify an issue, I might not be able to look at them personally. I am not able to answer private messages, emails, or phone calls unless they go through proper Support channels.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});

Here is the workaround below if you want try it and pass around. In the next release it won’t matter what you have the “Color Conversion” set to. Your Lab Spot Colors will all be converted regardless.

Open your InDesign document. Go to File->Export and select Adobe PDF (Print) (*.pdf) as the SaveAs type. Give it a name and click save.

You should see the following dialog. Select “Output” from the left. Then change “Color Conversion” to “Convert to Destination”. The click Export. Now when you export using the FusionPro plugin your Lab Spot colors will be exported properly.

(I couldn't get the images off the email)

So this fix didn't quite work for me, but in the upcoming release the LAB color export will be fixed. The color was still coming in wacky so we ended up getting the exact CMYK values for the Pantone color (370 C), and then I sat & tweaked it in the colors menu in FusionPro.

Alex has had success wit this work around and I would suggest that anyone running into this issue try his method listed above first before tweaking CMYK percentages. The tweaking has taken a very long time & should only be used as a last resort. To avoid all of this, use RGB/CMYK values in your InDesign files.
