"Base/Master/Variable colour" feature?

Recommended Posts


I'm wondering if Designer has any kind of "master colour" feature that I'm just not finding?

What I mean is, let's say that I have a complex object made up of many shapes. For ease of explanation, let's imagine a drawing of a car. It's made up of a bunch of shapes, including 4 wheels. Is there any way for me to define a "wheel colour", and then when I colour my wheels, I can click the newly defined "wheel colour" swatch. Then, later if I decide I want to change the colour of the wheels, i can simply alter the colour of the "wheel colour" swatch, rather than going through my layers, finding all my wheels, clicking them and recolouring them? I guess like a "master page" in publisher.. but with colour swatches.

Does designer have anything like that? Maybe it's just the programmer in me but I feel like a sort of "variable swatch" would be helpful.
