  1. I've searched around and while I see people asking about this, doesn't seem like there's any kind of formal request for this feature so here's one. Essentially it's what the title says, please add the ability to create, edit and apply global colour swatches in illustrations and designs done on the iPad. Global colours are a fundamental part of vector design and illustration, the need for this is vital! Right now the only workaround is to create them on the desktop and then open the file on the iPad, but this has limitations besides not being able to edit the swatches on the device itself. For example if you apply a global to an object, the swatches panel will not indicate in any way that the colour is apply to the object, unlike in the desktop where you can see the swatch highlighted. Thanks!
  2. Let's say you add two fills to an object with the Appearance Panel, and to each fill you attribute a different global colour. If you later modify both global colours you'd expect both fills on the object to change appearance. Instead only the active fill changes. The attached video shows the steps to reproduce. Thanks! 1_Trim.mp4
  3. This is the third global colors issue I reported just today. While the other two could be considered kind of niche or harder to spot, this one is dead obvious. You guys really, really, really need to spend a whole version just tearing down the Swatches panel and rebuilding it in a way that's user friendly and that actually works well in all situations. Select an object. On the Swatches panel press the add current color as global color. That's it, that's all it takes to reproduce. 🤨 You'd obviously expect the object to have the newly created global swatch applied. It doesn't. You need to actually click on the newly created swatch for it to be applied to the object... Attached is a video reproducing the issue. Really consider spending 100% of the time for version 1.9 rebuilding the Swatches panel. Managing colors is a fundamental part of well done graphic design, guessing if our swatches will work on a given situation is not acceptable. Thanks! 3_Trim.mp4
  4. 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
  5. Is there a way to export global document colors to the SVG in a centralized way? eg. style/linearGradient or solidColor So as to be able to change one line of code and have all affected elements change their color at once! Thanks!
  6. In Affinity Designer it seems there is no way to change the opacity of global colors. This is becoming frustrating when designing UIs. Opacity is an integral part of color schemes in Google's Material Design; it completely depends on opacity to create visual hierarchy. From Google's Material Design Guidelines: "Using opacity instead of shifting colors often creates better contrast and relative luminance. For example, gray text (#727272) becomes hard to read if the background color changes to magenta." Is this feature on your road map?
  7. Let's say I've created two global colors: G1 and G2. I insert some objects and assigned them G1 color with different transparency, tint and noise values. If I change the G1 color everything works fine. But if I assign G2 color to them, all attributes are resseted. BTW, you should put tint slider together with opacity and noise sliders.
  8. Hi! I've recently got access to an iPad Pro and I've been dabbling with Affinity Designer. Great stuff, but I've ran into limitations that break my colouring workflow. First let me explain how I do it on the desktop: Draw a vector shape Apply a global colour to this shape Create a pixel layer inside the shape Apply a Colour Overlay effect to the pixel layer Attribute a global colour to the above effect Draw on this layer, the pixel brush colour doesn't matter since the Overlay effect always overrides it Repeat steps 3. to 6. for every colour I want to draw inside the shape Move on to the next shape and start from 2. again This way if I want to change any colour after the fact, all I have to do is edit the global colours and all parts of the illustration respond accordingly, even the pixel layers. The iPad version of Affinity Designer does not have global colours, nor it does not support attributing swatches to layer effects... this fundamentally breaks the method of controlling colours described above... I've already requested both features on the appropriate forum, but until they get implemented I'd need an alternative method. My question is, what alternative methods of recolouring the artwork should I use? What do you use when you want to recolour the artwork after you're done? Thanks in advance!
  9. It seems like the issue has been around for a while. If you apply global colors to a gradient - they do not update when you modify the global colors themselves. Is there a way to have either a 'global gradient' or a way to properly link global colors into a gradient?
  10. Found a crash that happens when many artboards are present and a global color is edited. The steps to reproduce it are: Load the document below. Select the document palette. Select one of the color swatches in the document palette. Make the color global. Click Edit fill. Click anywhere in the color wheel. AD becomes immediately unresponsive. Cheers, Crash edit global color.afdesign
  11. It would be really fantastic if it were possible to create global color sets - swatch collections that vary the colors on global swatches, where just selecting a different set gives the ability to rapidly test and edit different color combinations.
  12. I have a document with some embedded icons with multiple colors. The document is a web page. The icons are inside of this web page. I have global colors for the web page document. When I open the embedded document by double clicking it, I don't see my global colors from the 'web page' document. Since I am experimenting with the colors as a whole, changing them all at once, it does not make sense to 'export' the colors from the web page document, just to use them in the embedded document to get the colors in there, as they will change. It seems counter intuitive to have to open this embedded document and not have my global colors from the web page document available to make changes. I should be able to edit the global color and have it effect the colors on the web page document and the embedded document. How can I do this?
