Hello,

I have a large color library and need to get RGB, hex values and the "name" (label) from color libraries.

This works great to export CMYK, RGB: Export of color values to Excel

This works great to convert to HEX: Easiest Way to Create Hex Color Swatch Chart for Web?

How to get "name" that is displayed in the Color Library (not the same as the swatch name)?

Maybe there's a newer simpler way?

Hi tlw22,

Thank you for sharing the above threads. This could probably be possible through scripts, hence moving this thread to Illustrator Scripting​ forum.

Regards,

Srishti

It appears that there has since been a "clean out" and all the old stuff is gone.  I found the particular thread you ask about through Wayback Machine.

As a test, I added a PMS spot color to a Library and then, in a new, empty document, I selected the color in the Library and chose "Add to Swatches" from the Library palette menu. The color appeared in the swatches palette, but the name was gone. Weird. Sorry I couldn't help. At this stage the Library doesn't seem to be directly accessible by scripts.
