Working on some campaign pieces. The printer my client is using is having issues with my files: everything needs to be spot colors—which I have set up—but they are reading the files as having elements with process values. So when I reopened the files to inspect them, I found a weird issue. My COLOR panel still listed the elements in question as being Pantone Black at 40%, but the Swatches panel didn't seem to remember that I chose that specific swatch.
So I reselected that swatch, set the appropriate value, saved, closed, and reopened. Same issue.
This doesn't happen with the other Pantone values I use in the file OR with the objects with Pantone Black at 100%. Any suggestions?
