    If necessary to see both at once, drag the colors palette out of the group with the gradient palette, then when you click on a stop the color will show in the colors palette. You can drag it from there to the swatches if you'd like to retain it for other uses.

    That works if it's a "real" PMS color. The color I'm working with is a "new' tint of a PMS color. One slider is one color tint the other is another color tint. When I click on either, nothing is highlighted in the swatches palette.

    I think maybe you misread what I said. The color will show in the colors palette, including any tint value applied, not in the swatches palette. Since the colors palette and gradient palette are in the same group by default, you should drag one or the other out of the group so you can see them at the same time.
