SLS Color Chips


SLS Color Chips is a plugin used for adding color
chips to production documents.
Essentially the plugin allows the user to build
color-chip graphics out of document swatches.
The user is able to specify what swatches are iused
and what they are called.
As the information about the swatches is also needed
elsewhere, it is kept in XMP as well.
As the user makes selections, the swatch area/s gets
updated live.

For Garment colors:


COLOR-NAMES_GARMENT
or
COLOR-CHIPS_GARMENT
For Decoration colors:
COLOR-NAMES_DECORATION
or
COLOR-CHIPS_DECORATION
