Color Picker digits round up
Hi, I like Illustrator for many reasons, but I find one little thing is annoying. So often I need to prepare the design files for my printer. And because the color picker doesn't have the feature of auto rounding up the digits, the color I used always has decimals, instead of a rounded up number in CMYK mode. It is not easy for the printer to process these color data. I have to round up each color manually, which is time-consuming and I might miss some elements. So is it possible to have the color picker have an option of rounding up digital for the color it picked up? And in the Appearance panel, the color digits are always not the same as the color picker panels show, which has the decimal digits.
This should be an option, I think. I myself prefer to strip decimals.
To do that now, I use a slightly modified Round Color script by Toshiyuki Takahashi
The page is in Japanese and can be translated with Google Translate, but the script originally is in Japanese too, so you can use this translated version I attach — just rename it from .txt to .jsx(UserVoice does not allow scripts in attachments)
Then you can put it in Scripts folder and wrap it into action to run with a hotkey.
When you say it's not easy for the printer to process fractional CMYK color data, what do you mean? An office printer, a roll fed proof printer of some kind with its own internal RIP, or are you sending to a standalone RIP like Caldera or Onyx?
