I created an .ase file in InDesign CC with a list of 20 colors in a particular order. When I Load Swatch into a new document the order of the list changes. Can I avoid this?
The list has one Pantone color but the rest have CMYK values and I have named each colour. The list change does not appear to be alpha-numerical.
Are you using InDesign CC or InDesign CC 2014. In InDesign CC 2014, you can create color groups. Those will be honored in the ASE file and should keep together color swatches you want to organize together.
Thanks Steve. I'm using CC 2014 and this solution works fine.
(I'm still not sure why the saved colours should change order when not grouped but, as this works I'll go with it).
