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.
My guess is that you have selected the previous version palette "Pantone Solid Coated" in 2017, while you are using the new (was there already in 2017 too) "Pantone+ Solid Coated-V3" palette in 2019.For some reason they (Pantone) have decided to rearrange all colors based on "chromatic flow", which means that the colors are no longer in numerical order.They have also added 112 new colors to the beginning of the palette, which makes the confusion complete.I think you can imagine how fun it is to search for a specific color in the printed formula guide when the colors are no longer in numerical order.

Makes you REALLY wonder who the hell hires these people to make these asinine decisions? I am sure they are Harvard graduates and paid quite well too. WTFF????
Is there away to use the 2017 palette in 2019, and what setting do I have turned off so I can hover over a color and see the pantone number. Thanks for these replys. I assumed this was operator error on my part. Really strange no one from Corel responds to any of this.
You can still use the old palette in 2019.In Options > Global... > Color, you can choose what spot color palette to use by default.My guess is that you have "PANTONE+ Solid Coated V-3" selected, and you need to choose "PANTONE solid coated" from the dropdown list instead.If you want to open this palette in Draw, here's a screenshot:

Pantone, inc is now owned by Xrite, but they often change the order of colors and add several new colors. It is not the only difference, also the values to convert Pantone to CMYK canges. Corel only follows Pantone's guidelines, as does Adobe and others.
Anyway, you can still use old Pantone palettes, but maybe you could lose some colors.
