Can't change shape fill in macro

Recommended Posts

Macro record. Draw shape (picks up current fill). Try to change fill colour. Flashes of hope then frustration of being pulled back to original colour.

For me, the assistant just flat-out says that macros can't change the fill. Just as with any other operation that macros can't do.

It's certainly disappointing, but is it really a bug or a feature request?

I didn't get an assistant message. Certainly should be there, pretty please?

Fingers are crossed for decent competitor to PS actions in v2...

Yes, but v2 is perhaps years away. First there's 1.8, then probably 1.9, then possibly 1.10 :)

In a macro...

Currently, to draw a shape in a particular color you first select the color you want then draw the shape


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

Tx. In macro it won't let you at fill colour.
