How to Define a Flash Color Palette
Defining and using a limited color palette helps to brand your project and create a similar "look and feel" throughout the animation. The default Flash web palette contains 216 web safe colors plus 12 common colors and seven gradients.
To open the current Swatches panel, choose Window > Swatches.
Click on one of the color boxes to select a color.
To remove all the default colors, choose Clear Colors from the panel pull-down menu. All the colors are removed except black and white.
Select a new color using the Color panel (Window > Color), then return to the Swatches panel and click the blank area below the current swatches to add your new color to the Swatches panel. Repeat these steps to add multiple colors to your palette.
To remove a single swatch, Cmd click (PC-Ctrl click) the swatch you wish to remove.
To restore your palette to the default colors, choose Load Default Colors from the Swatches panel pull-down menu.
