    Default Indd. 5.5 lost color swatches

    Any reason that all of a sudden I would lose those. I've tried restarting software, computer, adding swatches. Opening and closing windows?
    What would affect that?
    any ideas?

    thanks

    Have you tried deleting your Preferences? I would just move them to the desktop, in case it doesn't fix it you can just move them back.

    On a Mac, they are in MacintoshHD/Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences.

    I'm looking at that now. Is it the pList? I don't want to mess up the others. I'm guessing Indd 5.5 is 7.5 and Indd 6 is 7.5.3?

    No, there should be a folder in there called "Adobe InDesign", and inside there you'll see subfolders for whatever versions you might have installed.

    So, if that didn't work you can just put your prefs back so you don't lose however you've set things up.

    Are the swatches gone for one document, or every document? What about when you create a new document? Is the Swatches palette still visible and it's just empty?

    Just trying to get a better grasp on the symptoms. The more details you can provide, the better.

    Just to clarify - you quit ID, removed the prefs, then launched ID again, and it didn't work?

    Yes. The ink manager in the swatch palette works, if that tells you anything. I'm trying to get a job out and needed to convert pantones.

    Are you sure you're looking at Swatches, and not Separations Preview?

    The reason I ask is if you had spot colors showing up in the Separations, then went into Ink Manager and converted them to process, they would disappear from your Separations list because you would now only be using CMYK.
