Hello! Could you elaborate? You would like to have a given color palette load when you open a given file, like it is the case for Illustrator, or do you envision another method? For instance, one might want Bridge to show what spot colors are used, or styles appears in a document...
I think that adding more info might help the engineers that would develop an idea.

Yes you are right. I’ll try to explain: I work in an agency with a lot of different clients, with a lot different people.
every project has it's own color palettes, and set of styles. Styles we use for different effects, like buttons, borders, shadows... it would be nice if the person who defines the styles and colors could link it to the PSD. So if someone else opens this PSD, only the right colors and the right styles are loaded. Then you have two places less where mistakes can occur.

Another feature that would be nice is folders within the Styles, or Palette windows. At the moment you can only store all your styles/colours in one big pile. With folders you could atleast store your styles for indivdual projects or clients.
