    Rearrange color swatches

    gotobemac
      Is there a way to manually rearrange the color swatches? In ImageReady I could click and drag a swatch to another location within the swatches palette. Very handy for grouping custom colors. I can't find anything that describes this ability in Fireworks CS4. Can someone enlighten me?

          Unfortunately, this is not an option.

            In Fireworks you can either add the swatches to the existing ones by
            1) Click on an object filled with the color you want to save
            2) Pass your cursor over the swatches panel
            3) When the cursor changes to a paint bucket, click in the swatches
            panel to drop the color there.

            OR to create a custom palette you can save:

            1) Choose Clear Swatches from the swatches menu
            2) Click on an object filled with the color you want to save
            3) Pass your cursor over the swatches panel
            4) When the cursor changes to a paint bucket, click in the swatches
            panel to drop the color there.
            5) Choose Save Swatches from the Swatches panel menu.
