Latest Photoshop, Mac. Clicking on the name of a colour swatch does this:



I can't figure out a way of reinstating the name of the swatch once this has happened.

I assume that's not intentional behaviour?

What OS are you on? I'm not seeing this happen on Mac running Mojave. Is it possible something in Preferences has become corrupt that's corrupting your panel?

Hi Led, I am not able to repro this either macOS 10.15.3.  I have the panel set to "Large List" - you? Any other things that you can think of that might be unique to your set up?

Small list.

No, I can't think of anything that would have caused this. No new extensions, filters etc.

I've gone back to a previous version now anyway,  2020 is a massive car crash.

Hello Led, could you let me know what is the file extension for the swatches shown in the list? Is it .act by any chance? Thanks!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled 21.1.1: color swatches list loses names.

The swatches color panel loses names in list mode: 



Cheers :)
