Creating custom color palettes

Custom color palettes are collections of colors or color styles that help you organize and store colors. They can include colors or color styles from any color model, including spot colors, or any color palette found in the Palette libraries. You can create a custom color palette by choosing individual colors or color styles, or by using the colors in a selected object (vector or bitmap) or an entire document.
