I updated to Illustrator 2017 earlier this week and I noticed now, when I hold my cursor over a swatch, it doesn't show me the swatch/Pantone name anymore.

Does anyone know why and how to get that feature back?

Please help.

Thanks!

Actually I just figured it out!  Only took me 2 hours lol

I turned on "Show Tool Tips" under my general preferences.

If not please save your work and close all Adobe applications.
