Change Colors Globally AFTER Global Color Created

Recommended Posts

My design has missed the boat on creating a Global Color.  I have hundreds of objects (nested in groups) that I want to change the color.  From what I read and test, I can only globally change colors if 1) I create a Global Color 2) fill my object with that GC color - now that object has the "magic" to change.  As I said, I'm way down the road and want to "bless" my objects with a GC that I can play with/change.  

Is there any way to accomplish this?  Drilling into each group, selecting my target and making it a GC color is not an option.

Please Help!

I have both iPad & Desktop (PC) but work primarily on iPad - so a resolution on either device is welcomed

Then I suspect you may be out of luck. A global colour has to be applied to an object for it to take effect.🤔

You may try to select one object of all objects you want to apply the global color. Then use the selection "same fill color" function and all object of the same color should be selected. Then you apply the global color to the selected objects and you are finished.

That's how I would do it.

And next time start with global colors in the first place ;-)

I didn’t know this feature was available on iPad. Works a treat too. Somewhat hidden in the menu system so adding menu pic for @dcgall
