Is there an integrated help function available in GMG ColorPlugin?

No, but as of version 1.3.3, you can access our GMG ColorPlugin Help Center on the internet directly from the application. To do so, please click on the question mark icon at the top. This will open the Help Center start page in your default browser.

Are there any tutorials on GMG ColorPlugin?

Yes, under https://www.gmgcolor.com/support/help/colorplugin/cpi-system/license.htm, you can find a Quick Start Guide that will guide you through the most important functions. Additionally, you can watch our video tutorials in the Tutorials & Walkthroughs section on our download page.

What is the definition of "multicolor"?

In a multicolor workflow, the standard CMYK ink set is extended with additional colors, thus enhancing the color space. Especially the 7-ink combination CMYK + OGV, i.e. the additional use of orange, green, and violet, can be very beneficial. With these seven inks, you can cover a very wide range of spot colors without changing inks on the press.
