I've been playing around with using Creative Cloud Libraries to share assets between a group of files that I am prepping for print, but I'm struggling to get my head around sharing colours.
Without using a library, I can make a swatch global which means that if I use that swatch on any elements, the link is dynamic and I can tweak the swatch and be sure the colours will update throughout the document. I'm assuming that by using libraries I can effectively do the same thing across documents, so by updating the swatch in the library I can be sure it will update across all the files that use the same library.
However, this doesn't seem to be the case. Even within a single document, it appears that once I add the swatch (even if it is a global swatch) to the library, there is no longer any link between the swatch in the swatches panel and the swatch in the library. If I edit the original (global swatch), items that used it will change colour, but the swatch in the library doesn't update. Equally, if I change the colour of the swatch in the library, the swatch in the swatches panel doesn't update, and done of the objects on the stage update. Even if I directly use a swatch in the library panel to colour an item on the stage, it doesn't behave as a global swatch - if I deselect the item and change the swatch, the item doesn't update.
So what am I missing?
