My company's primary color is Pantone 541 C. Prior to InDesign CC, I could select New Color Swatch..., PANTONE Solid Coated, type in 541 and it would come right up. Since moving to InDesign CC, when I type in 541, it defaults to 5415 and will not go to 541 no matter what I do. I have to scroll through the list (waste of time!) until I find it and click add. It is in the list, but does not come up when typing 541. WHY? Does this have something to do with Pantone+ versus the old Pantone colors? Can I create a default swatch to include this color because I use it in 99% of things I design.
Try typing 541<space>
adding the space will take you to the swatch you need.
You're welcome. This was driving me nuts, too (in CS6), until I found the solution on this forum.
