So is there a way to get Illustrator or Photoshop to update color books as they change. Over a year ago Pantone added 112 New Colors. I actually need to use a couple of these colors on a recent project, but they were not in Illustrator in the Solid Coated Book. You would think since the applications are not Cloud based, they could update the books with just a simple application update. What is the benefit of not having a Program that is cloud based as opposed to CD upload if they can not make these updates to the applications?
If there is a trick I do not know about to add these missing colors please let me know!!
Get the Patnone Color Manager software (free if you have a printed swatches book) and then use it to install what you need.
Thank you for your help, i downloaded the program and added the new colors!!
I can understand your situation. As informed above by Monika, you need to get the Pantone Color Manager to get the missing/needed colors. Here's the link you can check: Pantone Color Manager Software with Library Integration
A simpler option than Pantone Color Manager is use Pantone Connect, an extension for AI, ID and PS and also a web version at https://connect.pantone.com. The Extension is available on the Adobe Exchange Marketplace (https://exchange.adobe.com/creativecloud.details.103029.pantone-connect.html).
