Files have a swatch that cannot be deleted
Please help me understand why this swatch cannot be deleted. In this case it is a Pantone swatch, but in other files it's just a global color. I have deleted all objects and links in this file to be sure it's not connected to some hidden element.
Thank you for looking. It is becoming an issue in file cleanup for clients. They all have this one odd, unremovable swatch from another project.
As it turns out the swatch was in use by the plugin.
If the same happens to you — try to check all the symbols, graphics styles, anything like this in the document that might use the swatch.

Hi Marc. Last week we discovered this bug in Stylism tools. The corrected version will be on the air next week.
Well, this is somewhat expected. Glad it got sorted out.
I will share this with the AG team, but I am sure they can't workaround this. The effect should keep the swatch to call it. Meanwhile I am closing it as Resolved.
Thanks for raising this up!
Thanks! Initially it reappeared, and I had deleted all symbols, brushes, styles, anything i could think that could be using it, but it happened to be a swatch setting in the astute plugin AG Block Shadow. Thank you for helping me think this through.

Marc, I can delete it and it stays deleted when I read the file back. Take a look — does is occur when the attached document gets opened?
And I recall seeing this problem before...
Where does this swatch originally come from? Are Libraries somehow involved? Do you have any symbols, styles, anything like this in the document that might use this color?
