Is there a trick to having the find field show in the Pantone panels when they open? Previous Illustrators used to behave this way. It's a PITA to have to click on the options to get the field each time I open the panel.
What OS are you on
I just pulled up the find field on a document and then Quit AI CS 5 ad reopened it and by keeping the system light and marking the pantone swatches persisten all is well.
This works in CS5. Tried the same in CS4 and it doesn't. I think persistence is one of the new features throughout CS5.
