Just a bit more control over Swatches panel...

Nov 1, 2011 3:09 PM

"Select All Unused" - great command, "Add Unnamed Colors" - sometimes also useful, but shouldn't you expect "Hide Unnamed Colors" too?

And couple of things I really miss here:

"Find Duplicates" and "Sort by...". I always try "to keep things clean and simple" as much as possible, unfortunately, sometimes I get files from other designers with a real mess there... and in a Swatches panel too. Hundreds of colors, dozens of duplicates, some of them obvious, some - not. Everything scattered here and there, and... no way to get things a bit more organized.

Well, no more words: just look at the Links panel and its options! Things are much better here...

    Find Duplicates would be handy in the swatches panel.

    Got no answer for you but hope someone else knows how.

    I agree.  I like Illustrator's option of being able to sort my swatches myself with color groups.  I too have the annoyance of having everyone else's swatches mixed in with mine when I syncronize my book documents.  I just have to be sure to name all my colors.  Having the swatches panel be more like Illustrator would be a big help in keeping things "clean and simple".
