Best way to change colour SVG icons in Designer

Recommended Posts

Here’s one way:

  • Open the SVG file;
  • Select one of the black-filled layers (assuming your layers are filled with black, you don't say);
  • Use menu “Select → Select Same → Fill Colour”;
  • Choose a new colour (e.g. white).

There will probably be other ways.

Thanks! But I asked about a SVG icon in black with a white background changed in white with transparant or whatever background.

But I noticed already, you can't edit a icon in Affinity Designer in a easy way.

Downloaded the free app https://nucleoapp.com/

And now I'm able to customize 2000 selected fonts in 1 second and export them to a folder.

But the principal is the same! My question was not about the colours (that could be any color or transparant and wouldn't change a thing! ) but the way to customize icons in a quick way.

And sadly that doesn't work well in Affinity Designer!
