    So, just out of curiosity (I'm fairly sure there isn't), is there any feature in DW (I'm using CS3) that lets me define often-used colors for a site (like a hex-based swatch palette)? It seems like this would be an easy and VERY convenient feature to build in, and I'm a little surprised the developers haven't yet thought of it?

    Right now I have my most-used colors written on a sticky in dashboard, but it seems so tedious to continuously look to that reference. Surely there is a better way?

    You can save favorite colors for each site in the Assets panel.

    Jeez I'm dense. This woulda saved me a LOT of time these past few months, lol.

    I really oughta get a CIB book or something to learn the full feature-set of DW. I mostly just hand code, so I miss a lot of the time-savers.

    Nah, DW gets the blame for this one, it's really the kind of thing that's easy to miss. It would have been nice if site colors were hidden away, oh, I don't know, with the palettes or something. Swatches seem like an odd fit with "assets".
