When opening a new image from a PNG file in Illustrator as the background for my artboard to trace over I am not able to select any color swatches the only available options are
I have black and white available for gradients but thats it. I have checked the color settings and they are set to RGB.
Has anyone come across this before, I'm hoping to either force colors or else find a way to add images from a file into the artboard as when I create a new document the standard colors are all present.
The weird thing is I have just traced round a photo and I cannot remember having this problem in the past!
