Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Searching for swatches, part of Illustrator CC 2013 New Features.
Much like fonts, the process of finding the right color for your project can be …somewhat of a daunting task. And in this movie, I'm going to show you …a feature that they've added to Adobe Illustrator that's going to help you get …there maybe a little faster. Now this is going to be a little bit of a …different workflow. Because in most cases when I work with …color, I work from right here in the Swatches panel, I don't necessarily work …from the Color Picker over here on the left. …And I wish that Adobe had actually added this feature to the Swatches panel, but …maybe we'll see that somewhere down the road.…
So let's say, for instance, that I have my Swatches panel loaded up with color so …much so, that I'm having a lot of trouble finding exactly the one that I need. …Well, all I have to do is come over here to the Color Picker and double-click on …the fill. And then inside of the Color Picker I …switch to Color Swatches. And now at the bottom I have the ability …to search through all of the colors that are available to me. …
