Freehand has a nice little addition to the colour pallette - tints - showing
lighter and heavier densities of the same colour thats selected in the
colour picker. Anyone know of an extension to illustrator that'll do
similar?

Gethin, Illustrator does something more sophisticated than that, and it doesn't limit you to a few palette variations. Try this: Shift-drag a color slider (except for HSB colors) to move the other sliders in relation to it. This keeps a similar color but with a different tint or intensity. As you do it, observe the other sliders moving proportionally in sync... pretty cool! Eddie

Make the color a Swatch. DoubleClick the swatch and make it a Global color. Now when you select that color, the color mixer will display a tints slider instead of the component sliders. Drag the new tint to the Swatches palette, and it will be defined as a tint of the base Global color, not as a new color.

This is a bit more cumbersome, but is functionally the same as the FH behavior you are describing.

Thanks Jet & Eddie! Both will be a big help (although still miss that tints
pallette - in fact wish adobe owned freehand *sigh*)
