Does MS Office really support cmyk colors although it is shown in fly out menu in colors but some tutorials say it's just to make us happy.
It seems not even Publisher supports CMYK anymore...
Your question, in reality, makes me wonder. Why would someone need a CMYK process which should be a very specific workflow, on an application that does not even states clearly if you can even use it?
Using an application that has not this specific workflow is fooling yourself thinking that you actually are doing it right.
A CMYK file does not just need to be sent as "CMYK"... It needs to be calibrated and profiled for... Should I repeat this? A specific workflow, print situation, type of paper.
If you really need to have CMYK use a suitable program. If you want a free one, use Scribus. Do not use any MS application for that.
Microsoft Word does not support CMYK images directly in its files. Word uses the RGB color format, but there is a workaround to this problem.
- Save your Word file as a PDF. Printers like PDFs.
- Ask your printer if he has Adobe Acrobat or a proprietary software that can convert an RGB color scheme PDF to the CMYK required for printing. This is likely because PDFs are common in the commercial printing industry.
