Create an object and apply a global color to it. Editing the said global color changes the object as expected. Then convert that object into a symbol. Changing the global color no longer changes the object. Say that you now apply the global color to this symbol object, it starts working again as expected, but only for that instance. If you delete it and drag in another instance the global color will no longer work again. See attached video for steps to reproduce. Thanks! 2_Trim.mp4
This has been happening a lot with symbols - I've found an old thread that might be related (here). 1. I create a symbol so that I can place it on multiple artboards and test different compositions. I never turn symbol syncing off or detaching any instances. 2. Then I start changing the colors of certain elements inside the symbol. 3. At some point, a few of the symbol instances will stop syncing the color for some of their elements.All other properties of the very shapes sync just fine however. For other instances everything syncs, even the color! In the following video sample I use the 1st instance to rotate an element (everything is one symbol) and change it's color. The 2nd instance updates fine on both properties. For the 3rd (buggy) instance only the rotation updates (and not the color). Things started going awry after I duplicated the 3 colored elements inside the symbol, hid the originals and assigned global colors to them. I'd be happy to email a sample corrupt file for debugging purposes. cheers! bug.mov
Hi team, I've seen this happen a few times over the last few months and since doing more with Symbols and Global Colours it's happened more frequently. Video below. Basically I need to use global colours across a document to conrtol a colour scheme. Having set up all of the objects with their global colours, I can then change the global colour and it can update wherever used accordingly - so far so good. Now, this does work (although you have to be very wary of colour sync breaking for symbol instances!) but it seems as though when changing the global colour it doesn't always update in the panels. The Layers panel still shows the previous colour of the object, and the Symbols panel shows previous colours too. In the video below you can clearly see the objects I'm selecting have a different colour in the Layer panel (bright green) to what they actually do on the Artboard (cream). The Symbol panel is showing a yellow colour for objects in the Symbol that have since been changed. It doesn't totally disrupt my workflow but it's a little distracting and occasionally confusing. Collapsing Groups or Layers and re-expanding appears to kickstart the colour replacement but this isn't ideal as you can imagine. affinity-colour-update-issue.mov
