Using Color Libraries

If you're used to working in Illustrator, you may be unfamiliar with the term unnamed colors, but you're used to the concept. Unnamed colors are referred to as nonglobal colors in Illustrator; the concept of InDesign's swatches applies to Illustrator's global colors.


The most reliable way to specify color for your document is through a color library. Color libraries are based on swatch booklets, which give you a more accurate representation of how your color will appear as ink on paper, as opposed to how it appears on your computer screen. The color library you choose to use can depend on several things, including your corporate standards, the type of paper you're printing on, the color libraries supported by your prepress provider, even the country you're printing in.
