Cannot Edit a pantone color in illustrator

Aug 9, 2012 12:24 PM

Has anyone encountered the problem of not being ablw to edit a pantone color in illustrator? I'm trying to switch it to process CMYK and the top portion of the editing box is ghosted out.


Thanks !!

    Seems to work fine here.


    Define "Editing box"

    You need to have the swatch palette open > click on the element that uses one of the Pantone colors > the swatch should be highlighted in your swatch palette, panel, whatever > you should see the CMYK triangular square in the palette > click on the CMYK icon to convert the color to process > should show up as a new swatch, if not, just drag it to the swatch palette.
