I've been looking around for a script that will take the used spot colors in a document and place them in a predetermined spot. I've came across several posts about this, such as the COLOR CHIPPER although I think it's focus was on swatches, but it's kind of confusing me. What is confusing is the part of making New CMYKColor or RGB or if I even need to do that. I've looked at other posts and the Adobe docs, but none seem to help. Adding the text isn't difficult, it's getting these spot colors to reflect what's in the document that is. From what I'm seeing now:
I'm going to keep working on it, but if anyone has any ideas, I would appreciate it. Thanks
Getting the used CMYK and used SPOTS is possible without removing any swatch items… You can parse the data from the file… I keep meaning to create my own verison of this but there are several scripts about that already do this sort of stuff… A little document info artboard would be what I want…
Could you refer me to some? Apparently Jet has had some but they've since came down. I've worked with alerts to find out what's being used, but that's as far as I got. After you parse the data, could you update the panel with the contained spots?
No it's free, if you send me an illustrator logo i will customise it for you. Note it will only work on a mac just now.
I'm working on a better version, complete with language selection and much more options.
Just email me if you are interrested.
