Good day,

Is there a way to see what the Pantone colour value of an object is? I'm working in a "Print (Press-Ready)" document. I applied a  Pantone colour, and also added the colour to the swatches panel.  If I hover over that swatch later,  how do I confirm what Pantone colour that swatch represents?

Thank you.

If you add a Pantone colour as a fill it should show the Pantone name when the cursor is hovered over the swatch, if the colour is added as a global colour, for some reason it get called "Global Colour {number}" instead of using the Pantone name as the default name, I think this should be changed.

Thank you for the reply, I tested this now with a new document. I added a new Pantone colour. It still does not show the name/value of the Pantone colour when I hover over the swatch.

Same here … I read the manual and the discribed workflow doesn't work. The list with the values is not shown, when it should.
