If You Didn’t Use It, Lose It

When you want to send your document to a printer or service provider, you should make the document as simple as possible to alleviate any potential doubt or confusion as to what you did. Therefore, you should delete any unused color swatches from the Swatches palette so that your printer will know exactly which colors are used in the document. InDesign has no single command to do this, but you can do it in two steps. Choose Select All Unused from the Swatches palette’s flyout menu. This will highlight all your unused swatches, then just click the Trash icon at the bottom of the Swatches palette to delete them all in one click.
