Not a silly question at all, but I don't think it can be done - at
least not in FW's swatch panel.
What I usually do is clear the existing swatches, so I can add my
kuler swatches to a clean slate. The if I need to, I can export the
swatch file for use with other designs.
Thanks again Jim. That's normally what I did, but I'm trying a different approach. I have a particular client who wants to see different color schemes. So I created a home page mock up in Fireworks and the used states to show the same design with different color schemes in one file rather than creating separate files. So, all the different swatches used are in the same file. It's not a big deal because I know where one ends and the next begins even though they are in one continuous row. It would be nice to see each on a separate row only because if I come back to this project 3 weeks later, I might not remember which was which.
Options might building out the design in pages rather than states, and
using a separate state to contain large swatch samples.
Another option is to use the Color Palette to export a color palette
based on your chosen colors.

I do something really simple and a bit silly - after I add a set of swatches for colors from a palette, I add a neon green swatch (or a black swatch) to mark the end of that set of swatches. This way I can I have multiple sets of swatches all separated by a distinct color to make it easy to see where one set ends and the next begins.
Great tip, David!
I considered doing each color scheme as a seperate page, but the problem there was that I was using a master page. So, that's why I used states instead. However, doing them as pages would have been better when exporting to PDF. Then I could set it to export all pages and got all color schemes in one multi-page PDF. With states, I have to export each variation seperately and then combine each PDF file into a multi-page PDF using Acrobat.
LOL brilliant! Here I am trying to figure out how to get a man to the moon when all I really need to do is get him across the street. Thanks for bringing me back to earth. lol
