I tried using the Metal - Steel (Rusted) on a simple Inventor part and it came in correctly in Publisher 2012. There should be more to the file that you are using I believe. Would it be possible to share a small Inventor file that you are seeing this problem in 2012?
Please email me directly email@example.com and I can send you a secure ftp site to upload the dataset.
Thanks for sending in the dataset. Your model currently has a texture image for color and Publisher currently does not support this workflow.
We bring in material color and also a color override but not color override from a texture image.
I will take this issue back to our development team and see if there are any workarounds possible.
I just installed it and it killed my Office 2010 COM Add-in for Publisher and everytime I try to restart it, it pulls a run-time error and will not load.
Could you please try this workaround in the link http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/Autodesk-Inventor-Pu
