All Pantones have been converted... still getting this message:

I haven't changed the names of the swatches, though.

Do you have the old Pantone .acb libraries copied to the new version?

I had the warning a few times, but it has stopped now.

Do you click the X to close it?

Hi Ton-

I didn't intentionally copy any libraries. It's just a client's file that I've opened & get the warning. Only only on my laptop (Macbook) it seems... I don't get the warning on my iMac...

I believe I did click to close it.

If you don't copy the .ACB files related to Pantone spot colors from a prior version of Illustrator you won't be able to use any Pantone spot color fills in current builds of Adobe Illustrator (thanks to Pantone). With the current version of Illustrator if those .ACB files aren't present any objects with Pantone spot color fills will appear black.

I still get the warning on my system when opening files with objects filled using Pantone spot colors. It would be nice if they had a "don't show again" button thingie.

In Illustrator any spot color used as a swatch will also be in the file and they don't appear black. With Photoshop the black has been solved with a recent update.

Where the hell is Adobe support? We open files all the time where the customer has left a pantone swatch, this warning should be allowed to be disabled in a setting. It's idiotic that I constantly have to close a warning dialogue every time. Don't make me do unnecessary clicks, that's lazy UI.

Did you copy the .acb files to your version of Illustrator?
