Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Searching for swatches, part of Illustrator: 2013 Creative Cloud Updates.
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. …
Note: Adobe Creative Cloud is updated on a regular basis. We will add more tutorials as features are added or changed, so check back often.
