Ah, sorry. Wrote too much. :/ I need he "highlight" layer to not contain text
(or "highlighted" text) but rather some selection of the image having the same
color that should be emphasized in print. Imagine "grey clouds" that should be
"silver clouds" when printed...
To do so, my idea would be to store two images ("background" containing the
full image, "highlight" just containing the selection that should be in the
highlight color layer), convert "background" to CMYK and use scribus to merge
these two into one PDF 1.5 output. Would that work?
Thanks again and all the best,
