  1. In Device Center, click the Resources tab and click Spot Colors.
  2. If a substitute group already exists, select the substitute group and skip to 5. Otherwise, to create a substitute group, select the location in the color group list where you want the new substitute group to be placed.
  3. Click New and select Substitute Group.
  4. Type a name for the group and click OK.
  5. Select the location in the color list where you want the new substitute color to be placed.
  6. Click New and select Substitute Color .
  7. Select a color mode for specifying the original color value.
  8. Select a tolerance degree for the original color.

    Tolerance determines how close a particular color must be to the original color to match. Small and Large are defined as follows:

    Color mode

    Small tolerance range

    Large tolerance range

    CMYK (0-100%)

    +/- 0.25%

    +/- 0.5%

    RGB (Device Code 0-255)

    +/- 0.25

    +/- 1

    RGB (0-100%)

    +/- 0.25%

    +/- 0.5%

    Note: Tolerance does not affect the substituted color.
  9. Type the values for the original color. Use the Tab key to move from one field to the next.
  10. Under Converted, click Edit.
  11. Type the values for the converted color and click OK.
