5. Group Swatches Together as a Set

The colors should now appear in the Swatches panel. Let’s group them into a swatch group. The idea of grouping swatches is a cracker. It allows us to have sets of colors that belong together, like a family. After all, we can’t have them all thrown into the same area with no boundaries. It would be like an all in tag team cage match at the wrestling... Anyway, group them by selecting the new colors and then pressing the group swatches button at the base of the Swatches panel, as shown in Figure 6.
