In QGIS, you can apply CMYK to text, using the CMYK sliders palette. However, I can only find an RGB colour picker for lines and fills. Is there a way to apply CMYK to these elements? Thanks. Sean.

Sounds like a good "future project" for QGIS. – RyanDalton Apr 30 '13 at 14:39

QGIS uses the operating system's default color picker with its features and limitations. You'll have to convert the color codes.
