Not sure I understand what you are trying to do. I think yo uare saying you want to import an ASE file into the Kuler web application? Then you want to make edits to the file and save it again for use with InDesign? Please clarify.
My intent is exactly as you stated it. I have been given an ASE file (created in Kuler) but I would like to use Kuler to further examine the compositions of the colors and make changes if necessary. Thank you so much for your attention to this!

I experimented a little with what you were asking and the only way I found was the following. (I don't believe its possible to load a .ASE back into the Kuler website). However, when you import a ASE Swatch theme which was exported from the Kuler website into the InDesign CS6 swatch panel, the name for each of the individual swatches is the HEX value of the color with a # on front. So, I just copied the HEX name from the swatch panel from InDesign and pasted it into the HEX field on the Kuler website. I had to set the "Select a rule" option to Custom so each color could be entered independently. Be sure you are signed in before you begin recreating the theme and save it with a unique name before you make any tweaks. After that you can just load it as a starting point from MyThemes, edit it, and save it with a new name as many times as you like.
Sounds like a good workaround.
Amazing! Two years later and I still want to do the same thing!
I'm trying to do the same thing in the new Adobe Color. Can't figure it out. Should be simple.
My intent is to share the .ase with freelancers and others who work with us.
Hello, Adobe Color team?
Yeah, just discovered this as well. It seems like an obvious functionality gap to really spread colors between apps and users.
