      Thank you for reporting the issue. We need some information around the issue which may help us in narrowing down the root cause:

      1. Does it happen with the latest InDesign version 14.0.1 ?
      2. Is it document specific or happens with all the documents?
      3. Does it happen with Swatches panel only or all other panels while expanding ?
      4. Have you added any extra swatches or it happens with the default swatches ?
      5. Please specify your Platform, OS version and InDesign version.

      A short video depicting the issue will be very helpful.

        Can you please look at the separations plate and let us know the color values.

        You just have to follow simple steps:

        1. Launch your InDesign
        2. Create an object say rectangle and fill your color
        3. Go to Window→Output→Separations Preview
        4. Select the drop down of View to Separations
        5. Hover over your object. The separations will show you how much % of which color component comprises the color.

        Also, let me know the Platform and OS version that you are working on.
        A short video showing the issue will be very helpful.
        You can directly reach me out at sakverma@adobe.com

        Thanks,
        InDesign Team

        Hello!
        I work on Mac with high Sierra 10.13.2 with adobe CC 2015, 2017 and 2018.

        • CC2018 Swatch panel bug

          The InDesign CC 2018 swatch panel displays different sets of swatches when set to different view options. “Small name” seems the most complete. Swatches are missing with the other settings especially after opening a document from a previous version of InDesign.

            • CC library tab won't select?

              When clicking on the dropdown menu to select a CC library, the tabs do not open unless I hold down the ^ button. When opened, I cannot select a CC library. Have refreshed several times but it still doesn't let me change the library! This is on InDesign for Mac.

                Hi

                Please provide the following information:
                1. Is InDesign installed on the default path?
                2. Do you have any special character in the path where InDesign is installed? Like username has special characters.

                Also, please provide a copy of you preferences, you can zip them and email to anasgupt@adobe.com.

                Regards
                Anasuiya Gupta
