Introduction

PANTONE+ is a new set of conventional Ink Books, containing 1379 inks. It replaces the old PANTONE books which contain 1138 inks.
Changes include:

  • A different number of colors.
  • Different Lab values for Individual colors.

PANTONE+ was introduced in Suite 10 assembly 5:

  • In Suite 10, the installation of PANTONE+ books was optional. It only required an extra step in the installation.
  • In Suite 12, the PANTONE+ books are installed by default, following the Adobe® CS6 policy.

Do not confuse PANTONE+ with PantoneLIVE!

PantoneLIVE is a set of Ink Books which are loaded from the PantoneLIVE server in the cloud. These Ink Books are only accessible if you have an XRite subscription.
In Suite 12 assembly 1, PantoneLIVE is in beta state.
