    exchange RGB swatches with CMYK swatches

    auclander Level 1

      Using ASE color swatches I am trying to figure out how to change the swatches in an existing document. Here is the scenario:

      We have created 2 custom ASE swatch panels, one Spot RGB and the other Spot CMYK. Both panels have the colors named the same. When I open an existing document that uses the CMYK swatches and try to load the RGB swatches using the Load Swatches pull down in the Swatches panel, InDesign will only update the unused colors. And it will not load the other RGB colors as copies. I have tried to start with the ASE RGB swatches pre-loaded into InDesign, but when I open the document, all those colors are replaced with the swatches used in the CMYK document. So, I cannot delete the swatch and replace it with the copy. Does anyone know how I can get around this problem? We want to be able to use different colors for web and print and we want to have a way to be consistent across documents and Adobe applications.
