Whenever I use a pathfinder function on black or white CYMK objects CS3 converts them to greyscale. I would like to keep them in the CYMK they started out in. Makes it more difficult in the printing program I export to. Does anyone know of a setting to stop this conversion?

does this problem in one file or any file you open?
try to change to CMYK from the color window.

if didn't work, open a new "print document" in illustrator, then copy and past your work in it, modify it as you like then re-copy back to your work document.

set your color preferences and make a template of the doc.. use this template for every design you do.. colors should stay consistant across...
