Preps 8 spot plate color mark problem.

I recently started working in prepress and with Preps 8 and RAMpage. But I keep having trouble when I add a Spot color bar and the plate color mark to ajob. On top of the plate color will have rsi_color_alias_ and a number. How do I get rid of it and just have the spot color showing?

Personally, when I used Preps, I made my own color bars in Illustrator using the RSI color callout as detailed in the Preps manual, and Preps automatically mapped the spot color and name when plating. I don't know how it works with internal Preps marks.
