Color swatches have disappeared at random. I try adding new color swatches by a USER defined library, and it's adding only patterns, no colors.
I'm still having this issue. Using 26.2.1 on Windows 10 64-bit. The swatches panel will only show colors OR patterns, but not both at the same time. If I add a pattern, the colors disappear and only shows patterns. If I add a color, patterns disappear and it only shows color. The fill and stroke drop downs on the control bar show all patterns and colors correctly.
this is happening to me as well. i go to defaults RGB and click on the first (white) and last and then click ADD TO SWATCHES and nothing happens. i added one by one and it worked UNTIL i added a pattern and it erased all colour swatches and only left the patterns. this IS happening with the new update.
and in the upper left hand (menu bar) if on the fill drop down, it does link to the swatches library or show the same swatches)
basically i have found in testing, as soon as you add a pattern to the swatch panel it deletes everything other than patterns
