Hi,

How can I get and install the Versa Works swatch into Scribus? I'm trying to use a guitar pedal printing service which requires a the Versa Works swatch.

thank you for any help.  I'm lost.

If the format is one of these:
Adobe Illustrator (AI), Adobe Color Swatch (ACO), AutoCAD Color Book (ACB), Encapsulated PostScript (EPS), GIMP Palette (GPL), OpenDocument Swatch (SOC), PostScript (PS), Scribus Palette (XML), SwatchBooker Collection (SBZ), VIVA Color Palette (XML)

Then you can copy them into Scribus' swatch directory and use then directly.

Thank you for your replies!

The swatch is an .ai file (RolandVersaWorks.ai). I downloaded it and put it in the /usr/share/scribus/swatches directory.

I tried to select it in Preferences > Color Management but couldn't find it.  Also couldn't find it in the color selector window.

Here is a link to the instructions I'm trying to follow.  I want to create an Inkscape > Scribus workflow for printing guitar pedals.

How do I select the Roland swatches??

Just found this, Rickrack, a color palette generator.

Will let you create color palettes, or create them from images.
