I am a beginner using QGIS 2.0.1 on Windows.

Following Data-defined Styles in QGIS I fill CMYK values on my map layers, but I cannot Export/Print/Save CMYK to SVG, PDF, or PRN/EPS file. I see only RGB values on exported vectors.

What is the best way to export CMYK colored map to prepress software like Illustrator?

Thank you all in advance for the support.
