Your Colors, Every Time

You can customize the Swatches palette (Window>Swatches) to have your choice of colors, patterns, and gradients appear in every document. To do this, you need to open a document called Adobe Illustrator Startup, found in the Illustrator CS2 Applications (PC: Program Files) folder under Plug-ins. There are actually two documents, one for RGB and one for CMYK. Open the document that corresponds with whatever color schematic you use most often. Once the document is open, add or delete swatches for colors, gradients, and patterns. Save the document, restart Illustrator, and from then on, the Swatches palette will contain your swatches.
