Yes, sometimes that guys are very efficient but in a case thay was
not. Some years ago I tell them about a bug involving a conflict of
Textures with graphicx package: the default of black in some place of
the page (caption but not always, headlines, labelitem etc.) is  RGB
and not CMYK. So when you must print in CMYK way the black is
splitted in 4 colours.

The blue Sky sent me a temporary(!) solution that is to put just
after \begin{document} the following command:

\def\default at color{cmyk 0. 0. 0. 1.}

but this is not sufficient, the different labelitem are not in CMYK
black. To have the complete solution I should modify also the  "item"
definition in latex.ltx.

I should define

\definecolor{black}{cmyk}{0,0,0,1.0}
--
and then change the following line

\sbox\@tempboxa{\makelabel{\color{black}#1}}%

to have all the black in CMYK mode.

I hoped this bug was not present in the new Textures but it is always here!

You think that now the Blue Sky will solve the problem?

PS
For sake of truth, several times the Blue Sky solved different
problems in a very short time.
