There's a lot here that's not clear.
First, version number would be 7.5.1 I presume? That's the latest patch for CS5.5.
Is the .ase file missing altogether, or is the color mode differnt, or is it just different in appearance? That last could be casued by differnces in color settings from document to document or version to version.
Yes, that's what I meant. 5.5.1 is the latest patch to 5.5.
The colors that I put into the swatch library are just no longer there. That's my problem.
Can you remake the .ase file from the original document? I admit I have no idea how the contents could go missing, but I'll assume you are correct, and recreating things is probably the fastest thing you could do.
Yeh. I did that. It was only 20 colors, so, it wasn't that big a deal. Thanks for your help.
