Are You Missing Pantone Colors in Adobe Software?
Over 5,600 Pantone Colors are missing from the Pantone Swatch Libraries in Adobe Creative Cloud, including 826 Pantone Matching System (PMS) colors and all of the Fashion, Home + Interior system colors.

The Extension is one part of Pantone Connect, a seamless color platform for mobile, web, and Adobe Creative Cloud. Measure physical objects and match them to a Pantone color using the new Pantone Color Match Card for mobile, then design with that color instantly in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign.

Time-saving features include:
o Add any Pantone Color with one click to a design file or save directly into your swatches
o Eyedrop a color from your design file and convert to the best Pantone match
o Convert RGB, Hex, CMYK, and Lab values to closest Pantone matches
o Create, tag, and add teammates to palettes to enable full team collaboration
o Easy color inspiration including extraction from images, color harmonies, and trending palettes from Pantone

Teams and Enterprise:

For the unsigned ZXP file needed to included Extensions in your CC deployment package, contact our team via support@pantone.com so that we can assist and deliver the right files to you.



We've made important color space bug fixes in this latest version:
- When adding a spot color to swatches (PMS, TCX) in InDesign, the color now passes as spot instead of a process color
- Color Bridge and CMYK guide colors are now added to Swatches and documents as process colors, thus keeping their CMYK values intact. Be sure to have your document settings set as CMYK for these color values to apply correctly.

After downloading Pantone Connect, you will need to close and restart your Adobe application. After restart, go to Window--Extensions--Pantone Connect to open the extension.

If install was not successful, proceed to directions using ZXP download from our product page on Pantone.com and the Anastasiy Extension Manager. Contact us via support@pantone.com if you require assistance, we are very happy to help get you up and running quickly!
