Hi!

 

Can someone tell me why I can't use colors from my swatch library anymore when I Live Trace?

 

Thanks!

 

Chris.

OK, thank you. I can reproduce that. Can youtry and save the swatches as a library and then load that library and use it - does that work? For me it worked with swatches libraries, so perhaps that is a workaround. And please post a bug report: http://illustrator.uservoice.com

Hi!

 

I need to Live Trace using specific swatches from my Swatch library. This was working in 2019.

 

2019 (working):

Hi!

 

It is very hard for me to post anything here today... I can't send links, my steps by steps, etc.; it always gives me errors. It is very frustrating.

This is clearly not my day!

 

Why is this happening?
