PMS colors in ai 27.4
« on: April 17, 2023, 11:19:12 AM »
Did they change the way pantone colors are listed in the swatch pallet? I am looking for 1375c. It is a golden yellow in my printed pantone book. In AI I am getting an avacado green.  :(

Did you, by any chance, ever see the same color in a previous version?

I know in the latest version of Photoshop CC they basically got rid of the ability to search the Pantone C color book. The codes don't even look like normal pantones. From the limited reading I did, Pantone wants you to purchase a plug-in for photoshop to see the colors or something now. Another cash grab. My work around so far is to use the 2022 version of Photoshop because the colors are still showing up in that version.

Hmmm, I'm running 27.1.1, and under Color Books, there are no Pantone Solid Coated or Pantone Solid Uncoated in the list anymore. They are there with a "+ CMYK" next to them, whatever that means. However, I read of a workaround somewhere that if you have an older copy of Illustrator you can copy the Pantone Library from there and add it to your existing libraries. It worked for me anyway.

Are you using the Pantone Solid Coated V4 swatches? Looks pretty orange in my AI 27.4.1

I have uploaded the Pantone Solid Coated-V4 swatch pallet here for anyone who is not using it yet. Drag it into your Swatches-Color Books.

I still have CS4 installed the pantone colors are still there. 
It's not a job if you love doing it.
