Hi All,

I'm trying to load Pantone color swatches in PS2020. Wheni click on Import swatches, my color swatch folder opens but it's empty. Any idea where the swatches are or how to get them? No problem loading them in Illustrator.

Thanks!

Hi Ged do you know how to get the folder swatch view I can see in the image above? I want to group my colors similar to Ai. I have a list view option (Ps) but that just lists the colors separately.

I'm using the latest version of Ps. Updated today. I thought the update would add the folder option but no luck.

The color you see where added as an ACT file. Thought getting rid of default panel then loading an ACT would maybe add them to a folder but it just adds as seen in the example.

Why do you need them as swatches? 

Are the libraries not available when you click »Color Libraries« in the Color Picker?
