I was preparing a file, where i've created a pattern with spot colors. While i was using this file on it's own, everything was fine, but my workflow required that i was placing this document inside of another document (template) that was created to send for the production company. 

After embedding the linked file, the spot colors used in the pattern object turned into composite / CMYK colors. I'm lucky the printing company realized this pre-press, otherwise it would have been an expensive discovery.

Which Illustrator version do you use? I tried to replicate it but could not.

Copy/Paste, Place linked, Place Embedded, Embed after linking, spot remains spot
