You know if you have your color wheel up in illistrator, above the main color wheel is your default "transparent, black and white" I work with a laser cutter and often use red to indicate scoring vs cutting. It would be really handy to just click a red square like I do the black, white and transperent.
Thanks for providing your feedback. I'll pass this on to product team. You may also share this feature request on Adobe Illustrator UserVoice. This forum is monitored by product team and they might look into it for future releases.
Hope it helps.
Swatches don't work for this?
no, that was my first guess and try but wouldnt let me add or have the option to "add to a menu" , drag and drop, nothing.
"Add to a menu"
Please tell us how you want this to work and where you want to select.
What's wrong with clicking a swatch, like Monika suggested?
