LAB decimal values

Hi, I posted a lot on the subject and didn't get any answer from Adobe.

 

Currently, Illustrator only supports integer values for LAB. It'd be amazing if there will be support for decimal values for LAB swatches.

 

See the feature request here.

See other relevant post here that was unanswered here.

I see that your feature request doesn't have a lot of support. Maybe if you could explain why this is important and how everyone could benefit from this, then more people would support it.

I have the same question as OP

I need to assign LAB values to swatches within Illustrator, which rely on two decimal values for exact brand specificity.

Currently - Illustrator is rounding these LAB values to the nearest whole number which won't allow for 100% consistency between art output from InDesign and Illustrator. 

How can Illustrator be adjusted to allow for decimal values in LAB assignment, through the swatch panel interface? 

The scripting response/links - for my question (and how I'm understanding OP's question) are unrelated. No need here to pull LAB values - I need to assign LAB values, to two decimal places. 

InDesign currently allows for this (two decimal values in LAB assignments) - I need Illustrator to allow for this so workflow and swatches between the two apps - but especially between print vendor & brand expectations can be 100% consistent with each other. 

TIA
