  • Drag the color sliders, or type in values in the text boxes in the Color palette.

  • Click a color swatch in the Swatches palette.

  • Select the Eyedropper tool, and click a color in the artwork.

  • Choose Window > Swatch Libraries to open another color library, and click a color swatch in the Color Library palette.

2You can save a color for painting other objects in your artwork by adding it to the Swatches palette. Select the color, and do one of the following:
  • Drag it from the Fill box, and drop it over the Swatches palette.

  • Click the New Swatch button at the bottom of the Swatches palette.

  • Choose New Swatch from the Swatches palette menu.

You can also add colors from other color libraries by selecting them in the Color Library palette and choosing Add to Swatches from the palette menu.

3To name a color, double-click the color swatch in the Swatches palette, or select it and choose Swatch Options from the palette menu. Type the name for the color in the Swatch Options dialog box.
4To paint a shape with a transparent color, select the shape and fill it with any color. Then adjust the opacity percentage in the Transparency palette or Control palette to less than 100%.
5Create a pattern (patterns cannot contain patterns themselves), and drag it into the Swatches palette.
