Change swatches from CMYK to RGB

Jun 25, 2013 10:19 PM

Okay so I've just realised that my documents are CMYK and have changed the settings to RGB (File > Document color mode > RGB and from the colour fly out menu) although I notice that when I hover my mouse over the colors in the swatches panel that it shows me the CMYK values.


Could someone please assist me with this as I'm not sure why this is happening.


Thanks in advance

    Swatches will be converted to the document color mode, but their names will not. So what you see is just the names.


    Nonetheless you might need to change color definitions.

    to change color definitions--from the 'color' menu select the flyout menu in the upper right corner (indicated in attached pics) and change from cmyk to rgb

    Swatch definitions don't change, even if you change the document color mode.


    If you really want RGB swatches, select all, copy, new RGB document, paste.
