enter image description here Hi SE

I have a set of global RGB colors in my Swatch palette and I need to update some of them with a new hex code. But I can't access the hex input in the Swatch Options, so my only option is to input the RGB definition.

Is there a way to replace the Swatch color by dragging another object on top of it (like you're able with Graphic Styles) ?

Thanks and HNY :-)

Drag from the Color Panel and hold the Option/Alt key down when you "drop" the new color..

You must drag from the Color Panel.
You can't drag the object because that will default to creating a pattern swatch.

  • Wow, that was sneaky 🤔 Thanks Scott 👌
