11.7.3 PDF2DTP – Spot Colors - PDF2DTP User Guide - 1

If the PDF defines a color by name (called a “Spot” color) then PDF2DTP will add the color to the document’s Color palette based on the closest color model supported according to the color’s name. The most common color models are all supported, including ANPA, DIC, FOCOLTONE, HKS, PANTONE, TOYO, TRUMATCH, etc.

If a PDF does not contain named colors then this means it was generated by an application which had PDF Output preferences set to export all colors to RGB or CMYK. Even though the original document may have used Spot colors, a PDF created using only CMYK will of course not contain any named Spot colors
