Each Flash file contains its own color palette, stored in the Flash document. Flash displays a file’s
palette as swatches in the Fill Color and Stroke Color controls and in the Color Swatches panel.
The default color palette is the Web-safe palette of 216 colors. You can add colors to the current
color palette using the Color Mixer. See “Working with solid colors and gradient fills in theColor
Mixer” on page 80.

To import, export, and modify a file’s color palette, you use the Color Swatches panel. You can
duplicate colors, remove colors from the palette, change the default palette, reload the Web-safe
palette if you have replaced it, or sort the palette according to hue.

You can import and export both solid and gradient color palettes between Flash files, as well as
between Flash and other applications, such as Macromedia Fireworks and Adobe Photoshop.

You can duplicate colors in the palette, delete individual colors, or clear all colors from the palette.

Using the default palette and the Web-safe palette

the upper right corner:
