I'm going crazy over this one. I have been trying to locate color swatches being used in a Illustrator CC file. Through this process of elimination I have tried multiple search and locate options. However, the swatches still appear in my Swatches Panel when I choose the option for Add Used Colors.
- Convert the color swatches over to Spot and using the Separations Preview. Here I can turn on and off the color to locate where the color is being used.
- Create a simple shape with the fill and stroke using this swatch. Then using the Select -> Same -> Fill Color -or- Select -> Same -> Stroke Color.
Through this process I have located the colors, which are builds of Black in CMYK, and converted them to the color standard of a Rich CMYK Black that I need. But now there is no indicator that shows me where these "Hidden" colors are being used. Anyone have other tricks that might help me locate these colors?
Here is a Screenshot of my swatches and the CMYK value colors are the ones that i cannot find being used in any shape or font.
Thanks in advance.
