This happens from time to time, I have a file open and want to make a new swatch, but the option is grayed out. What's up with that?

(Illustrator CS3)

I get this problem also, like you only from time to time, very annoying.

I’ve occasionally noticed that I seem to be unable to create new swatches if I don’t currently have an object to which I can apply a swatch selected. I don’t know if this is a normal, common Illustrator thing that you already know about, or if it’s a random thing that only happens sometimes; obviously, I only think about it when it impedes me.

No, you're not the only one--this has bugged me several times.
I do not like those green links and spam.
I do not like them, Sam I am.
