Using the Mixer Palette Colors

You can store commonly used colors in mixer swatches at the top of the Mixer palette and then use these colors on the Mixer pad. A series of colors appears by default; however, this color series can be changed to suit the individual preferences of the artist. Mixer colors can be saved, loaded, and reset to the default.
