Hello Everyone. 

I am using AI 2021. 

 

I created my new swatches through the swatch panel. 

but everytime when I open a new file, my saved swatch disappears and it only shows the default swatch. 

 

Anyone knows how I can fix this? 

Thank you.

Swatches are saved with the document. If you create a new file you only get the swatches that are part of the document preset. About swatches: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/using-creating-swatches.html

Nothing has fundamentally changed about how swatches work. Did you use Swatch libraries saved from Illustrator, or CC libraries? You can save a file's swatches as a library in the Swatch panel menu.

Thank you for your reply. 

 

I remember ai 2018 the colours will be saved in our libraries which allows us to use swatches previously saved. 

Is there a way for ai 2021?
