  3. Wrong swatch color for color using hsb values

    I'm using InDesign version 16.1 on Mac OS X 11.3
    When setting a color using HSB values, the color which is created is wrong.
    In the screen shot I added you can see two swatches, both have the same related values.
    One is set via HSB the other by RGB.
    The HSB preview is totally wrong.

  4. Color picker HSB interface not working correctly

    Indesign 2021 v16.1

    While using the new HSB interface in the Color Picker, when any of the the "HSB" radials are selected, the chosen color values change to something completely different. Please see the uploaded pictures for an example.

    When the cursor is dropped into the any of the CMYK value entires, the color changes back to what was intended.

    If the selected object still has a color thats chosen in HSB is sampled and applied to another object. the new object's color will show up in the color picker as the intended color but with a in-gamut color option…

  5. Swatch pallet not showing current color in use

    Since the latest update to version 16.1 the color swatches do not show which color is currently in use. You cannot toggle between the fill and border either in that pallet. The color swatches work in the top menu and the left tool bar but not in the pallets.

  7. InDesign's eyedropper tool is inaccurate. Photoshop's eyedropper tool is perfect.

    First off, thanks for the wonderful apps! This is about the eyedropper tool featured in both InDesign and Photoshop. The eyedropper tool in InDesign does not grab the exact color from a source image, yet the eyedropper tool in Photoshop works perfectly. Is there a way to use the Photoshop eyedropper code in InDesign, so that it will acquire an accurate color, and users don't have to open Photoshop to acquire the correct color when working in InDesign? Thanks!

  8. Importing swatches: The colors are not in the correct order

    (Adobe InDesign 2021 16.1)

    When I import color swatches from another InDesign doc, the order of the swatches are reversed within the folders in the swatch pallette.

    When I import color swatches from an ase-file, the tint colors are missing.

    Even though this is a minor issue, I really hope it can be fixed.

    Thank you.

  9. Colour Profile Reset Issue / Sync Adobe Indesign 16.1

    It is becoming a bit of a issue when after updating to 16.1. The colour Profile resets to this setting. Then again going to bridge to set up the original profile again. After a few hours, closing the program, it resets again.

  11. Tint slider disappears/doesn't work in 16.1

    The tint slider in the swatches window in the newest update for the Mac version of InDesign (16.1) on Big Sur appears for a fraction of a second and then disappears. You can type in the tint % box, but the slider is inoperable.

  12. Linking a CMYK Illustrator .AI file in an CMYK InDesign imports colors as RGB

    When importing a CMYK Illustrator file in a CMYK InDesign document it converts the colors to RGB.

    This happens in InDesign 2020, 15.1.3. Not certain how long this has been an issue. We recently had to change our links in many files from .AI to EPS / PDF files.

  13. HSB Swatch Displays incorrectly with Color Settings OFF

    On Mac, when using the setting "Emulate Adobe InDesign 2.0 CMS OFF" in Color Settings, HSB color swatches display incorrectly on the page. For example, a light pastel would display as royal blue. When using "North American Prepress 2" or "North American General Purpose 2" settings, the color is displayed correctly.

    Also, the automatic names InDesign provides when using "Add Unnamed Colors" in the Swatches panel show incorrect values. See attached.

  14. Rendering intent not being respected switching color spaces inside Swatch-Panel

    Hi there,

    so apparently the rendering intent set in the document OR the application isn't being respected when the color space of a swatch is being changed e.g. from RGB to CMYK.

    Tested in InDesign 15.1.3 and 16.0.1

    Steps to reproduce:
    1 create a new document, with working spaces sRGB and "PSO coated v3" (profile available on eci.org)
    2 create a swatch, e.g. RGB 0 / 98 / 227
    3 change to CMYK, results in the correct 90,64 / 63,6 / 0 / 0

    Now
    - go back to step 2
    - change the "Solid Color" rendering intent of the…

  15. Editing a Gradient Swatch affects orientation

    When a Gradient Swatch is edited, the orientation / position of that gradient on existing objects is reset. Changing colors / knots should not affect the position of applied gradients.

  17. Changing text color with properties panel.

    This is about changing the text color of a selected text field through the properties panel.

    Current behaviour:
    When a text field is selected the properties panel shows just the color of the box not the text. To change the text color a number of clicks through two submenus are necessary.

    Suggested behaviour:
    Text and box color are displayed directly in the properties panel.

    Thanks!

  18. eye dropper tool missing

    Return the eyedropper to the tool panel. I rely on this tool daily and suddenly, it is gone. Why would Adobe take this away? I'm really annoyed. It looks like other people posted this same question a year ago, but mine was here on Friday and today it's not.

  20. Swatch shortcuts missing

    Hi,

    I've just notice that shortcut menu to delete, group etc has gone missing from my swatch panel. I can't find any way of getting this back.
