What version of InDesign are you using? Are you patched to the latest update?
Er, sorry - wrong computer - this computer has CS5 7.0.3
Just did the update to 7.0.4 and that did the trick. Thanks!
So now I guess it's somewhat fixed. But just try and create a swatch for Pantone Plus 581 - lol - good luck!
Here's what happens:
Open swatch maker and choose the Pantone + Solid Coated Library
Type in a 5 into the box and it automatically populates the field to 510
You delete the 10 of 510 and type an 8 and it automatically populates the number to be 580
So you think you are just one number away, so you scroll up one number and its....378! (because Pantone + numbers aren't in numerical order)
So you highlight the 0 in 580 and type in a 1... and it populates the field to 5815!
You move your cursor past the last 5 and hit the DELETE key and ....nothing happens.
I guess you just can't get there. Thanks Indesign, Thanks Pantone for making designers lives hell.
I agree, this is a total nightmare!!!
"If it ain't broke, don't fix it!"
It's nice that they put out an update to fix this in CS5. No such luck for us CS4 folk unfortunately.
