    Ilustrator users give it a chance too with more support... maybe they can think more seriously about it:

    @David C Cardillo sure Photoshop does it well for ages. I work with Photoshop from some decades (middle of the 90s)... but Illustrator needs a more fully implementation about extra colors.

    My points is:
    - first is the ability to mix them even more integrated borrowing the Mixed Inks from InDesign;
    - second is the ability to Illustrator to export files with the extra colors (as it does with a PDF file) in a .PSD files (maybe a CMYK mode with extra channels);

    I think this is not rocket science... we all deal with CMYK with extra Pantones on our layouts so we should to deserve the ability to deal with those extra spot colors even more integrated and exported.
    That's my point for some 5 years and new Illustrator versions comes with no attention to this.
    Even Pantone should be happy seen features like these... ;-)

    2023... 5 years passing and we still can't have this handy and very logical feature as the ability to mix spot color with another colors (spot or even a CMYK color).

    This Mixed Inks feature would make InDesign even more connected to Illustrator.

    This has also to be extensive with exported files in .PSD and have those extra colors in separate channels (maybe in CMYK mode plus the extra spot colors translated to extra color channels).

    If it works well with PDF files why not with Photoshop files?

    A feature like this implemented on Illustrator would clearly appeal even more for AI-prepress users.
    It would remove a lot of consuming operations just to achieve combined extra colors mixes.

    Adobe needs to admit that we exist and we are not developing design only on InDesign... in fact most of us creates with Illustrator as a the first step of it...

    It's true Egor. I've tried all those options before and it's a real pain to get the extra channels from a Illustrator file right into Photoshop but not into a PDFx... maybe you guys one day will figure it out a way to have even more options to convert a file from Illustrator to Photoshop preserving all the extra Spot channels.
    I work mostly in packaging and it's common sometimes have more than just CMYK layouts... but Illustrator cannot even have features like Mixed Inks (as InDesign had it for long years). Maybe if you guys implement the extra colors as Inks and then have a check box only for PSD file export... i don't know but the fact is this is something still very obscured.
    There's other topics about Mixed Inks in which i've participated too... it's another feature that would make Illustrator even more connected with InDesign (and Photoshop).
    As i'm more an Illustrator power user first to everything and just so then i go to InDesign with my illustrator layouts, that has made Mixed Inks become a feature that less people use but if it was added first to Illustrator it would had a massive adoption.

    And yes... Mixed Inks are deeply connected with overprint features and also exporting those extra colors in more channels even if we are exporting in CMYK mode (as CMYK + extra colors)... that's why i deviated with this.

    Anyway... Egor you really clarified this thing about Overprint with export files. Thank you about that! Really appreciated all your feedback. Awesome!

    In response to Egor Chistyakov @egorchistyakov, who explained how it really works, i've tested it and in fact Illustrator can export with overprint simulation if Overprint Preview is active.
    Great!

    However, Illustrator just cannot output extra colors or channels (Spots, Pantones) of the artwork and renders it as just plain RGB or CMYK tones... even in a .psd file.
