I have to start each section with the “definitive” […]

Oops! I broke it!

I’ve made 36 new colours for Spectrum Swatch. When I added them to the project in Xcode, it messed up the order of the colours! A bit of work ahead of me in manually re-sorting them. And I can’t sort them by file name, the Sorting option is greyed out. 😳😱
