I opened an svg in illustrator. My swatches panel was empty. I want it to have all the colors used in the svg. How do I do that?
Select > Select All
- From the Swatch Panel Menu choose
Add Selected Colors
- Click the
New Color Groupbutton at the bottom of the Swatch Panel. (The little folder-looking button.)
You'll be presented with a pop up that looks similar to this...
When you click
OK, you'll have a swatch color group in the Swatch Panel.
The difference is primarily in the ability to add swatches for tints and/or convert the added swatches to Global swatches (as seen in the pop up dialog window.)
