Is there a way to delete the libraries I created at the bottom of the list?
check if you see the Swatch files are in the presets folder, if they're there, just delete them or move them to another folder.
C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator 2021\Presets\en_US\Swatches
Thank you for your answer.
When I restarted, they disappeared. But I created new ones for test purposes, and I want to remove them without having to do a restart again.
I'm on a MAC.
They don't seem to be there:
I restarted Illustrator and they were gone. It would be nice not having to restart, though.
did you create the libraries you're trying to delete? they must be saved on a specific folder.
why don't you create a new one, and right before you save, you take a note of the location? and let us know 🙂
those files are live, once you know the location, they should disappear from the menu without needing to restart once you removed them from it's location.
I did create the libraries and saved them on my desktop.
The libraries are still visible from the list even if I delete them from the desktop.

I see, I tried saving to the desktop and I got the same results as you did.
try saving them in the designated folders, for user defined libraries the standard folder is
C:\Users\canto\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator 25 Settings\en_US\x64\Swatches
for application library, save in the folder previously posted. However you won't be able to save directly from Illustrator since it's a system folder. You could save to the desktop and move the file yourself using finder/explorer. By saving to those 2 folders you can add/delete files without having to restart illustrator
Thank you! This works!
Try to save a library and have a good look where it is saved.
On a Mac it is username > Library > Application Support > Adobe > Adobe Illustrator 25 > your language > Swatches.
