Some of the Pantone Color Books that are pre-loaded in Adobe Illustrator, InDesign, and Photoshop will be phased-out from future software updates starting in August 2022. To access the complete set of Pantone Color Books, Pantone requires customers to purchase a premium license through Pantone Connect and install a plug-in using Adobe Exchange.

From the FAQ : Why is access to pantone color books changing?
Pantone’s licensing with Adobe was adjusted...

 

I think that means, the profit margin was adjusted...

I'm afraid that Met is just right about the reason for the adjustments.

 

No corny epitaph required.

I think Pantone has forgotten that before its Libraries were included in Adobe software, it was just a tiny printing ink company from Carlstadt, New Jersey.

You may want to save your favorite Libraries before they "go away."

  1. Open a new Illustrator file.
  2. Open the Color Library of your choice. (Window > Swatch Libraries > Color Books).
  3. Under the Options of the Swatch Library, choose Select All Unused and then the Trash at the bottom of the panel,
  4. Select all of the Swatches in the Library by clicking on the first Swatch and Shift-clicking on the last.
  5. Under the Options menu of this Library panel, choose Add to Swatches.
  6. Delete any repeated Swatches (the first and last that you clicked on earlier to select all).
  7. Export the Swatches as an ASE or AI under the Options menu of the Swatches panel. 

The ASE can be imported into Illustrator, InDesign or Photoshop.
