Opening a PDF with a drawing (vector based) in PGS gives the wrong colors, because it imports the amounts (percentages) of color in CMYK and not in RGB.

C is somehow always 0.
M percentages should be in R.
Y percentages should be in G.
K percentages should be in B.

When placing the color values in the right color mode (RGB), the colors are correct.

Remark: this bug is an old one, meaning it was already in older versions of (Windows) PGS. First found this in February 2007.

Thanks for submitting this! Any chance you have a (simple?) PDF that has this problem that you can attach to the bug? Thanks

Added the OPTA.pdf.
(It was made form an EPS which was imported in PGS. Then I printed this into a PostScript file. This was made as a PDF with Adobe Distiller.)

Fixed in's PDF filter. This was a custom ICC profile issue (color management). PageStream now has better support for custom ICC profiles, but it is not fully integrated into the workflow.
