Ability to reorder color swatches in color picker

Sketch and Illustrator both have the ability to quickly reorder saved color swatches within the color picker. I personally use this quite a bit both in initially setting up my working files, and while working through designs to keep myself organized. A specific use case is being able to compare multiple similar color swatches. And generally feeling organized, which goes a long way.

    God yes, simple drag and drop to reposition would be perfect.

    I find this feature very important for daily organization. Figma has solved this well.

    This is very important !
    Having the possibility either to reorder them (drag and drop) or order them by name.

    Use Case:
    I've started a project with Main colors (Primary, secondary, etc.)
    Only latter on I went and added 4 shades per colors. I need those colors to be grouped by their name (naming convention) or at least being able to reorder the global swatches by hand.

    As of today, it's easy to create something but very painful to evolve and/or maintain it.

    I'm surprise this is not something the Webflow Team has implemented by default with their attention to UX.

    Looking forward to see Webflow polishing this feature.

    Agree - this would make the evolution of a project so much easier, especially when handing the project over to clinet. Its nice to have everything in order. It can't be that hard to implement surely?

    So important in building design systems / templates

    I second what Chris Meeks said. The ability to organize color swatches is crucial for maintaining a neat, efficient design system, and it's a feature I use heavily in my Adobe programs.

    Folders or line breaks would also be very useful, as TRUE pointed out.

    Absolutely needed. I'm also working on a multi colour project, and it's annoying to not at least be able to re-order swatches. Even better would be the ability to gave folders or at least line breaks to group them better.

    This is one of those things that's very important when trying to maintain any sort of style guide or design system within a project. For instance, if you start with three global grey swatches and then add a fourth much later in the project, there is no way for them to appear together, sequentially.

    This would be a great improvement, especially when working with styleguide templates and larger projects.
