I need to generate a PMS swatch chart for all current PMS colors to do print tests off large format printers. We have old charts but need a current one. I am hoping there is a way to generate this chart in Illustrator CC without having to manually make one
Are you trying to have a physical swatch booklet? Then it would be better to go to Pantone website and buy from their industry standard swatch book.
If you are just needing to use it in your design in illustrator: Swatches panel > Open swatch library > Color Books and choose your desired PMS book of colors.
