ISSUES 2: Swatches (split)

Problem #2: Adding new swatches

The palette dropdown menu seems to switch back to the Recent Colors list every time a swatch is added to a custom Document palette. Nonetheless, the palette set dropdown still displays your custom palette.

As soon as a new swatch is added to the list something weird happens. The dropdown menu displays the correct palette set created just seconds ago. But the palette box appears to switch to the Recent Colors list because suddenly I can see a bunch of them in the area. This always makes me think that I've added multiple fills to my custom palette. It's confusing.

Try to replicate this yourself while following these steps:

  1. Start a new document.
  2. Create an empty Document palette.
  3. Create 5 rectangles. Remove their stroke color.
  4. Select each rectangle individually and apply a different fill. All 5 shapes should have unique fills.
  5. Select one of the rectangles and save the swatch to the empty palette created moments ago.


This is where instead of the currently selected fill, suddenly all recent colors you picked appear in the box. Just as if they were all added to the set.
