To Find Swatches Faster, Use Your A, B, C's
As additional swatches are added to your Swatches palette in a document, it can be more and more difficult to find the one you’re looking for. You could click-and-drag on swatches to reorder them in the palette so the list makes more sense for the way you work. Or you can make your Swatches as easy to find as A, B, C. Simply look under the palette’s Options menu and select “Sort by Name,” and instantly your Swatches are reordered alphabetically.
