I have a large document and a number of swatches that I use. I have the "palette" set to the document I'm working on. The palette is large with some 40+ swatches (some of which I don't recognize as having used them). I would like to know how to force AFPUB to save the swatches I have used over time on the document. I keep running into a missing swatch (where one object stroke or fill has that color, and I'd like to copy that color, but that swatch is not shown in the list of swatches). This forces me to use the HSL codes to manually re-create the swatch. However, eventually, that or another swatch won't be in the list when I need it. I suspect user knowledge is the problem, not necessarily a bug.

Document palettes are saved in the document but you have to add swatches to them once the document palette has been created -- they are not automatically added. See item K in the illustration of the Swatches panel help topic for the location & appearance of the button that does that.

OMG - I'm so glad to learn about that help site.

That site is just the online version of the Help within the app.
