Indesign swatches disappear

Indesign swatches disappear

Indesign swatches disappear

I have a long, complex document in the works for some time. I need to make a couple of additions, and suddenly all of my swatches are gone from the swatches palette. It won't let me load swatches from another copy of the file becasue it says they are already in the document. How do I restore them?

Any help greatly appreciated.

RE: Indesign swatches disappear

File>Export and choose Indesign Interchange (.inx)

Open the .inx (it opens as untitled and resave it as a new name to make it an .indd file again) don't overwrite your original file.
