This is a pretty helpful tutorial especially on the color palettes. But I'm having a problem :/ I was able to locate the files and make my own, but I'm unable to save it into the folder. It says that I don't have the permissions to do that. How do i change this?
Glad to help. Anyway, it seems that inkscape prefers to put the files into Program Files (x86)\Inkscape\share\palettes instead on some systems (like Win7). This means you could run into some problems if you are not the system administrator. I don't think there is an easy way to get around this - either you have to get an admin to copy the palette (which is bothersome and tedious) or maybe use some obscure way like a life CD of linux to copy it manually (which is again bothersome and tedious). I would suggest that you create an external SVG with color swatches instead. You can either import it into your images or have it open in a different window and copy the colors manually. I know, I know - it's sad that inkscape still has no user-friendly way to manage color palettes. And I'm partly to blame since I didn't actually try the palettes in Win7.
