I have a set of 8 label graphics designed in Illustrator (.ai files) that I am placing in InDesign for text layout. I've placed these labels on a large page for printing and want to test out a series colors for the graphics (and how the text looks with the various colors).
Is there a way to easily test a "color series" of these labels, systematically making various tweaks in coloration of the vector graphics? Currently I can edit the .ai files in Illustrator and then re-open the Indesign file, but since the .ai documents are "linked" in the InDesign layout, the old version disappears. It's quite tedious with so many labels.
This must be a common issue - the need to quickly test a color series on a complex design (in this case a set of 8 labels). I can imagine wanting to test out 10 or more color pallets, so this task seems a bit tedious. Wondering if there are workflows that can make this easier.
