Working with Swatch Tables

Every line of ink, film, or foil that a manufacturer makes is represented by a separate swatch table, which lists all of the colors available for that line.

The swatches in the swatch tables change appearance based on the color mode in use. Spot colors have a small dot on the right side of the swatch. Duotone colors have two dots on the right side of the swatch.
