Allow more than 5 swatches to be saved as a color theme
Please allow users to save more than 5 color swatches as a theme in Libraries. The number is very restrictive to our workflow.

This is so irritating. I regularly use the colour groups from well-known sites like ColorBrewer for layouts that require up to 12 colours.
Why does there have to be such a small limit on adding colour groups to libraries? I imagine that the limit was introduced in the days when files needed to be as small as possible because of low bandwidth, but these days, size shouldn't necessarily be an over-riding concern.

I have created six swatches in a folder and attempted to add them to my library. When I did this, I received the error message stating that I need to select 1-5 colors or a group even though I already have them selected and defined.
This is very true! Creativity requires more than 5 colors ^_^!

This is such a bizzare limitation. We just got whole Adobe package at work and I was so excited to establish my colour palettes, only to be met with that insanely confusing message x_x
Currently Libraries only allow for a max of 5 color swatches to be added as a group. My team and I share colors frequently through Libraries, and because we use more than 5 colors on a project we have to make multiple Libraries per color scheme. It would be way better and easier to organize projects if color groups were expanded to at least 10 or 15 colors. Then we could have one library per project with multiple color schemes.

The ability to generate palettes from images using live trace is great, I was dismayed when I created a swatch library then tried to export the swatch set to the library it gave me an error indicating that only exports with 1 to 5 colors in the set were allowed to be sent to the library.
