Default All Spot Whites Match

We use Adobe Illustrator to color separate our work. Customers send art in containing white. Of course we have to set it to our spot white as well as set the other colors to match our spot inks. Adobe Illustrator has a tool under windows called Separations preview. We often check our colors there to make sure we don't miss switching any over simply by turning the colors on and off. Whites are problematic in that they do not show in this window. We have gone to the trouble of assigning the whites an entirely different color so it shows. This week we missed getting one item on some art that was suppose to be white. The film was made and put on press. So we ended up having to cad cut and heat press this shape onto the totes. Does anyone else have this problem and what do you do to prevent missing assigning the white ink items to the same spot color?

It's probably a good idea to use a background color underneath the art so you can make sure to see all of the white in the art. Your spot color should have some color in it so when you map the whites, there won't be any pure white left in the art. All of it should be your special spot white color.
