Pantone Colors Converted to Black Error

This morning I opened a large group of files that have been seperated for multiple Pantone spot color and CMYK and recieved this error on each highliy refined image file: "This file has Pantone colors that have been removed and replaced with black due to changes in Pantone's licensing with Adobe.  To resolve, click "Learn More"   From there i Installed the Pantone Connect Extension and linked my purchased license for premium..... But the colors of the spot channels are still rendered as black.  Any swatches I create with the extension are rendered properly but Pantone Spot colors are not rendered correctly because the color information for those channels is not available to Adobe Photoshop.   

 

The work around for this issue is to double click the spot color channel in the channels pallet and click on thee color then enter the Lab values from the Pantone Connect Library.  Save the file and the channels will be rendered to the display properly.

Amybeth, I see in your image it adds a channel named "9344" and not "Pantone 9344," which is what the swatch is named when added as a swatch in Illustrator and InDesign.

 

Does that create a conflict/duplicate swatch?

 

Also, what is the version number of this plug-in update?

(And does it still require Rosetta to run on an M-1 Mac? so many questions...)

@Bob_Hallam – Until Adobe add such a feature (if ever), I created a script to open docs bypassing all warnings.

If you know the risks and value opening images without the warning, use the script to bypass all warnings (Pantone related or otherwise).

  1. Not running Rosetta currently. ( I have to double check the OS on my personal laptop exactly)
  2. I am using M1 Mac Book Pro 
  3. Correct,  it does create a conflict if you have a swatch added to  Indesign or Illustrator from a another library, unless you use the Ink Manager to remap
  4. Pantone Connect Extension updated to version 1.0.9

Not production worthy but they are obvioulsy working on it.

Any channel selectcions adjustments still have to be pasted on the channel from and alpha channel. (my experience)

I hope this answers some of your questions/

That Pantone panel is probably still a CEP panel en not the UXP panel. To run the CEP panels, you indeed need to run PS under Rosetta.

 

But dang... Pantone really gets burned Its indeed hideous what they are doing.

All those negative 1 star reviews, tells enoughAll those negative 1 star reviews, tells enough

 

People should lookup FreeTone by stuart semple; https://culturehustle.com/products/freetone
