What are the issues you are experiencing with CC Assets Website or Libraries?

Colors are not Color managed in CC libraries

I use Adobe Illustrator as an example.
Create an RGB color R 166, G 255, B 51 in an sRGB document and add the swatch to a CC Library.
Change your RGB color settings to Wide Gamut RGB and create a new document.
Use the swatch from the CC library, the result is a totally different color.
The color in the CC library does not have a profile attached, only the numbers are used and no conversion or warning takes place.

    Illustrator objects (including color) are color managed when the right settings are made in the Color Settings.
    You will get options how to habdle a mismatch.
    But this does not work for single colors added from the Swatches panel, they are not color managed.

    Hi Uwe,
    I cannot see why it should not be possible to add a reference to a color profile with a color (swatch) or a document item.

    Hi Ton,
    since color management is done on document basis, InDesign document, Illustrator document or PhotoShop document we have no chance for color management on single assets like swatches. Not even InDesign page items can be color managed; the underlying IDMS code will not allow this.
