Load Saved Color Swatches In Multiple .AI Files

Today I learned how to save and load swatch libraries in multiple .AI files.

Swatch and learn:

  1. Create a color swatch. If you’d like to be organized, save them in “Color Groups,” which are indicated with a folder icon.

  2. Find the swatch drop-down menu and select, “Save Swatch Library as AI…”. Give your swatch library a name.

  3. Open a new file and select, “Open Swatch Library” and where your User-Defined Swatch Library will be.

Boom—there ya have it. Your swatches can be now be used across any AI file when repeating this process.
