Thanks for the quick response! I’ve moved it from the top area to the drawing window and it is still tiny. I can change the colors when I randomly click inside this tiny palette, but I can’t seem to make it larger or see the swatches.
I just uninstalled (removed all system files) and conducted a fresh install.
I can now see the color swatches - (see below)
Not sure if there is another issue - I can’t seem to find a “cut” option in the Cuts/Layers palette under the mode selection option. Only have “Line”, “Fill”, “Fill+Line”, “Offset Fill” - no option to cut. Is there another selection/constraint elsewhere? Thanks!
