Wnen I click on fill and stroke properties the color swatches are missing.  It has to do wth my project somehow because when I open up a new creation they are there!

Am I in some mode?

Thanks....

You probably work in a document that was not based on an Illustrator document profile.

Could be that you opened an image or a pdf file.

You can add default swatches from the Swatches panel menu.

That's what it was.  Once I created a document, the swatches showed up.  Thanks!
