I wanted to be able to easily use a color program like Kuler and import the hex colors (such as #fef9ff) into InDesign, but there are no hex swatches so, I found this great script. If your working with HTML, being able to use hex codes will make you feel wonderfully streamlined. Here is a free add-on from in-tools CreateHexSwatch. This is a “start-up script,” that works with InDesign CS3-6. It comes with an mxp installer or you can drag the “CreateHexSwatch” folder into your Scripts folder (inside your InDesign app folder). Relaunch InDesign and the New Hex Swatch shows up in your Swatches panel menu.
