Frequently Asked Questions

If you wanted to manage an ink library on a project-by-project basis, you could add the Pantone colors to the project and assign a different name for that custom library i.e., Project XYZ. For example, if your project is for a brand like Home Depot, there is a certain range of colors that would go along with that customer.

Importing and exporting data is quite easy if the file is in CXF as well as text, XML, and/or JSON formats.

At Significans Automation, we often say, “We cannot automate unless we standardize.” Therefore, we emphasize the importance of starting from the same swatch values to improve the control of the results.

Users can open the ink library through the plugin in Illustrator and select those swatches. The workflow will add them to your swatch palette for later use.

Data is stored as LAB, new ink can be added using LAB, RGB or CMYK.

Everyone has access to the same consistent information. That custom color is now in the system, and it is available to the graphics operators to easily grab from the customer project.
