    Swatches

    MWVanThiel Level 1

      Hi all;

       

      I cant figure out how to use PS swatches in AN.

       

      I am writing about exporting CSS from PS, and about importing CSS in PS swatches.

      See http://photoshop-css.blogspot.com/ but this is under construction; see "Importing CSS".

      (I still have to check all of the HTML and CSS!)

       

      I can use these PS swatches in AI, ID, MU.

      But how do I use/import these in AN?

      Am I missing something?

       

      Thanks,

      Maarten

          If all you just want to import the css in Edge you can use yepnope or getScript.

            Thank you.

             

            I am indeed interested in how to import CSS in Edge. Do you mean Edge Animate btw?

            But in fact, maybe my English is not good enough, I was wondering how to import Photoshop swatches in Animate, just like you can do in Illustrator or InDesign or Muse.


            Thanks again.

              i guess you cannot import the swatches themselves.

               

              About css files:

               

              You can import css or js files in EA with either yepnope or getScript.

               

              You can add classes in EA using addClass() if you use classes in your css file.

               

              Here is a very simple sample with yepnope.

                Thanks again.

                I shall study your "About CSS files:..." suggestions.

                It opens another door.

                 

                "i guess you cannot import the swatches themselves"

                No, I tried everything.

                Still very odd...

                 

                You can export CSS from Photoshop, and since short also from Illustrator, to use in Dreamweaver f.e., you can import CSS into Photoshop, you can interact between Photoshop and Edge Reflow now, you can use Photoshop swatches in about any Adobe app, but you cant in Animate.

                  Hi, Maarten-

                   

                  Thanks for your feedback!  We're still a really new product, and color swatches was a new feature for us in our last release and was specifically for in-composition reuse.  I've added your suggestion for integration with Photoshop swatches for consideration for a future release.

                   

                  Thanks,

                   

                  -Elaine
