I am so sorry, didn't know that. But I appreciate others' input.

Clicking on a Pattern Swatch should add it to your document's Swatches panel. If you wanted to edit the swatch, double-click it to open Pattern Editing mode where you have many ways of modifying it.

 

Patterns can not be put into a "folder" (called a color group)

When I open the file (illustrator) it has it’s own swatches panel. I can’t figure out how to move it or copy it into my default set This should be easy but it is befuddling me big time.

Isaiah 55:8-9, “‘For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,’ declares the LORD. ‘As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.’” (NIV)

If they are patterns they should be visible in your swatches panel.

If they are looking like a pattern, but are on the artboard, you could select them (one at the time) and choose Object > Pattern > Make.

Another option is to select one and drag it to the Swatches panel, but check if that will give you the correct result when you use the resulting pattern in a shape.

Being that you can post, I doubt you have been removed. Your post was moved to the Illustrator community--it was posted in the wrong area for your question.

 

I removed your personal and commercial information.
