I prefer the 2017 version of the Pantone palette layout order. 2019 is completely different, is there away to reorganize the colors you use the most to always open in the order you set or default order they were in 2017. I set CMYK and Pantone solid - 3 rows of each that are my preferred. I will take a snap shot of 17 and 19 to show what I am asking is this isn't making sense.
Try the tools menu, options global, color and you should be able to set your default palette
As you can see of the left is 2017, hovering over colors shows pan-tone name. I prefer the swatches in this order, 2019 is not preferred for me, is there a fix, I went to the Global but don't see how to rearrange the actually swatches. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
In your 2017 screenshot, it appears to me that you are "scrolled all the way to the left" in that palette (the first item is the "no fill").
In your 2019 screenshot, it appears that you are scrolled to somewhere in the middle of the palette.
Here's what it looks like for me in 2019 with the palette "scrolled all the way to the left":
I am seeing color names in 2019 on hover, too:
