I am struggling to change the color value in illustrator. AS the design style guide is in hex values, struggling between RGB color mode. May I ask please if is there possibility to change the hexadecimal values to choose the colors.


Yes. Simply set the Color Panel to Web Safe...

Or, just use the HEX box with the panel set to RGB...

(Note: You may need to choose "Show Options" from the color panel menu to see the HEX field)

  • @scott show options needs to be on they are hidden in the default state if illustrator BTW – joojaa Apr 16 '20 at 9:34
  • It's inconsistent @joojaa sometimes you need show options sometimes you don't -- edited nonetheless. – Scott Apr 16 '20 at 9:37
