If you're talking about the colors table, this is a long standing, stupid Filemaker problem that goes back to at least version 5. There is nothing that I know of that can easily fix it.

As a quick fix, you can make a hidden layout that has boxes filled with your special colors, and then jump to that layout and add your colors back to the table by choosing your squares and adding their custom colors to the table. That's what I do, and I have hundreds of special colors.
