Working with swatches I've observed these little additions would be very useful.

Ability to...
1.- Select multiple swatches from color panel when no object is selected; so you can quickly delete, group, or move swatches between pallets.
2.- Delete selected swatches with keystroke.
3.- Create color groups inside a pallet, kind of like how groups are displayed in layers panel. This would help with organization and is more intuitive than jumping between pallets.
4.- UI visual aid to indicate if the color shown in stroke/fill is global, spot or overprint.
5.- UI visual aid to indicate if loaded in eyedroper is global, spot or overprint.
6.- Preview color chords before commiting them to the pallet.

Other color-related suggestions:
1.- Apply global color to object when sampling  with eyedrop tool from an object with global color. Currently, when you copy the global color from another object, it is a non-global version of that color.

2.- Linked colors (as described in others posts).

7. create all new swatches being global by default
8. have global swatches in application palettes
9. select more than 1 swatch to turn it to global
10. turn existing swatches to a spot colors
11. transfer their swatches with copy/paste of objects between documents
12. display (unfold) more than 1 palette at a time
13. auto-rename swatches if their values get adjusted

It has been explained on numerous other threads why this is not practical.  I would not expect this to happen, ever.

Not practical outside of document palettes.  They are already created as global by default when using the commands that create them as global swatches.  Simple stuff.

I agree that these would be very nice...  #12 was already brought up on other threads though.

This has already been discussed on numerous other threads.

That is because the eyedropper is picking up the color from the display on the screen, not from the document.  It always captures in RGB from what I can tell, and can pick up colors that are from other objects on the screen which are not actually part of the document (from the UI itself for example, or even from outside of the Affinity applications).

 

 

Finally, a few reminders from the guidelines which are not being followed here:

Just a few things to bear in mind:

  • Please search first, it may well be that you have a suggestion that others also want. If so add your feelings to their thread.
  • If you cannot find your idea, make a new post. Try to keep your post as concise as possible, and for the title of your post to describe the request as best you can.
  • Please just do one suggestion per thread. If your post title is “Here’s a few ideas to improve Affinity Publisher” you’ll be asked to split them up.
  • Please understand we can’t possibly do everything which is requested, but we try to make the best calls we can in terms of prioritising our work. Constantly nagging or being overly ranty that we haven’t implemented one of your suggestions will not help your cause, and such posts will be deleted.
