The Colour Wheel in the Edit Colors Dialogue Box (see image) is patches of colours instead of a smooth spectrum.
I’m looking to change the settings so that I get the smooth spectrum.
How can I do this?
What am I missing here? Why is the colour wheel showing colour patches instead of a spectrum (i.e. is this based on computer system, the application, the swatches I’ve chosen, settings in Illustrator?)
I’m using Illustrator CS5.x on a PC.
Thanks in advance for help and guidance as I am very new to Illustrator (but loving it!)
Okay – of course 5 minutes after asking the question (and banging my head against the wall before), I’ve finally discovered the solution (of course simple and straight-forward!) – so I am posting the answer in case anybody else (i.e. someone new to Illustrator) runs into this.
I had the colour group limited (see red arrow) to ‘Document Swatches’ – once I changed the setting to ‘None’ the full spectrum appeared in the colour wheel.
