I have two shapes with two different colours, and I'm trying to add them to the Swatches Panel. I'm trying to drag and drop them into the panel, but they aren't getting added into Swatches - even though I did exactly the same thing a few hours ago and it worked.
I've tried restarting Illustrator and still nothing. Anyone know why this is happening?
Are you trying to add the color to the swatches, or the object as a pattern swatch?
For a color: select the object, go to the Color palette and drag the fill icon from the Color palette (not your object itself) onto the Swatches palette.
For a pattern swatch: select the object, go to the Swatches palette and select New Swatch under the drop-down. Name your swatch and click Okay.
