In the Edit Color sub-palette, how do you add an already defined colour to the Custom Colours list without overriding what is there? I have a set of Surface Colours which I am wanting to repopulate through my Pen Sets.

You have to double click the pen you want to copy.
That will open the colour editor with the pen settings.
Write those setting down.
Now select a custom spot - the settings will change so now you change them back to what you wrote down.
Close and repeat for your next pen - make sure you pick a new custom spot.
You only have the 16 custom spots to fill up.
Now you can open your other pen sets and transfer those custom colours to the pens you want.
Otherwise you can only ever add your original pen colour to the first custom colour spot.
As soon as you choose a different spot, the colour you have picked from your pen set will change to the custom spot you choose - which is why you have to write down your original values before you choose any other custom colour spot except the first one.
Painful - I know.
