    I have multiple computers. Is there a way to duplicate the settings to the other computers other than manually changing them?

    Jerry: No, I don't know of a way to sync them. I suppose you could try to locate the preferences file involved and copy that, but I've never tried it.

    Thanks for that...will save me time. However, saving the colors in Word (2021) doesn't workā€”the app crashes. Workaround is to open the Word document in Pages, save the colors there. They then show up in Word. Silly, but effective.

    There are quite a few bugs in the Color Picker and Apple has removed key features for many years. cmyk is broken as is the ability to select objects and ensure the correct color is applied. The ability to save sets of named colors (bit clumsy but doable) didn't get a mention. There are several 3rd Party Color Pickers which do a far better job, a pity that Apple doesn't buy in the technology if it can't do it itself.
