Is there any way to fully import a saved colour palette into Illustrator? I once saved a colour palette from one project and wanted to import the colours for use in another project, but I found that the imported colour palette was separate from the second project.
On Mac OS X, Illustrator maintains these types of files in a couple different locations:
~/Users/philipr/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Adobe Illustrator CS4/en_US/Swatches/
~/Applications/Adobe Illustrator CS4/Presets.localized/en_US/Swatches/
There are all sorts of items you have pre-loaded into Adobe apps from within those folders.
I don't work in Windows, but I would imagine the locations would be the equivalnts of the user settings and the application presets folders.
