Importing PDF and exporting PDF colour changes

Previous topic - Next topic



I am newbie here, so thanks for any help. just wondering if you can help me out o a colour issue here.

I am importing a a PDF that has a lot of PDF marks in in set as CMYK
I am copying the mark creating a new document pasting it in and exporting it.
When I open up the new new document i see that something that was 50Magneta is now a mix of CMY

When I go back into scribus, I see that when I imported the PDF the colour is no Magent but something like colour from PDF#12345 so guessing it has imported the colour as RGB, is there anyway around this and to bring in the colour as CMYK?
