Hi busynights,

I'm not sure the exact workflow you are taking in AI but in Affinity, you could create a swatch of colours you want to use and when you've finished tracing your design, if you select the different parts and then click on the Colour in the Swatches panel, that part will be filled with the colour.

... and maybe use Global Colors to easily change the color in multiple places in the design.

What I believe you're seeing there is the Adobe Colour Themes extension. There's nothing exactly like it in the Affinity apps in terms of pre-defined colour combinations, but you can create a variety of colour chords based on current fill colour and add them to a palette:

Betas as they happen...

If I understand the OP requirement and the meaning of Color Theme correctly, then it is not a matter of creating some similar or complementary colors, but it is a matter of applying some selected colors (Themes) to one click on the entire document.
