    Hi- have a small problem- have searched everywhere and spoken to many people and no one seems to know how to correct this. was given a file and in the swatches were about 100 colors. I created a black square, copied it and pasted it into a new file. the 100 colors followed the black square. I went back to the original file and deleted all objects, selected all unused colors and deleted them. made a new black square and copied it into a new file. boom- all the colors appeared in the swatches. I would ordinarily just delete the file but need some of the images created in them. how do I unlink or simply get rid of all these colors? they infect everything. If you can help- thank you, if not- have a great day anyway. ken
