This feature is from illustrator (i used cs4).
this is very powerful features which allow to re-color any part of an object: symbols, shapes, groups etc'

It shows the user all the color used, and let him modify any of them.

saves the user time of selecting objects and sub object individually.

also the ability to make  a keyboard short cut to it is vey important.

I'm very miss this thing.

 

Thanks,

seems like a great tool

 

in the meantime you can work around it by using global colors from the beginning on

or use an HSL shift but this will rasters everything on export and is less flexible

Recolor Artwork is useful precisely to deal with files created by others, when they did not use global colours. It's also useful to reduce the number of colours used in a design, again created by others.

Hi lukepighetti,
Currently there's no way to select objects by its attributes but if all you want is to change their fill colour you can define/set a palette of global colours and apply them to the objects. Every time you update one of the global colours all objects using it will update accordingly. If that's not your goal and you just want to really select them by their attributes then i'm afraid there's no way to achieve this yet.

Looking for a way to select all objects with the same fill color such that I can adjust them all simultaneously.

What kind of adjustment do you need? If you want to change the color to all of them, it would be nice idea if you defined that color as global.

Nice idea and what I received from someone  else are two different things, wouldn’t you agree? Perhaps a way to convert every instance of a color into a global color would be a more semantic way to achieve what everyone is asking for in this thread.

I find global colors more convenient to work with. Can't understand why A-Team keeps static colors, still.

I don't disagree with you, but I cannot control the quality of upstream documents. Additionally, when prototyping designs I don't yet have an understanding of what is a global color until the design has matured. At which point, being able to convert all instances of `#FF33FF` to a global color with `#FF33FF` would be invaluable tool and cover many use cases.

I don't understand you. You can use global colors all the way in your design(s). You can change their definition any time and see your design with different color. If you don't change some color it will be a kind of static.

Let's say someone sends you a vector graphics file that contains a draft brand guideline and it doesn't have global colors setup. Being able to turn all instances of a color into a global color would be a massive timesaver.

 

Let's say you're doing an illustration and it isn't until you've completed the illustration that you understand which colors are global colors. Being able to turn all instances of a color into a global color would be a massive timesaver.

 

Let's say someone sends you a file that uses the same color over and over again, but since they don't use Affinity Designer they send it as an SVG.  Being able to turn all instances of a color into a global color would be a massive timesaver.

 

Hope that helps.

My example was for starting a design from scratch, not if you get it from a customer. At very start you create all colors as global.

I agree Rotem. After "Recolor Artwork" function come up create many colour variations much faster and more harmonic become a reality.

Affinity in some point of the future has to add similar or better function to be able to keep competitive edge.

I too would love this feature to recolour designs as in Illustrator.  See example   https://www.instagram.com/p/CHLWHXYAY_n/

Also the ability to fill a shape with a texture. So an image of a pair of jeans could be filled with a photo swatch of denim. This would also need to be scaleable.

Hi @2989,

you do this in AD with the Fill Tool. Switch to this tool and choose on the toolbar from the drop down 'Type' the option 'Bitmap'.

You also scale and rotate the fill 🙂

Yes this feature will be fine, but for a start, it would be enough, if possible to pick color in artwork and recolor all same fill/stroke color. This feature is still missing and I think this is most used feature in vector graphics. This is last important missing feature for me, why I still working with Illustrator ;)

Thanks for any improve the Affinity suite, it is great software!

What about using global colors? Select an object and change its global color and all objects with that color will recolor.

Hello Petar thank you for help, this is nice trick, but if I add picked color as global, then I change this global color, the artwork is unchanged. I must select colors in artwork, then select added global color and then with change color of global color it is working.. But this not solve the problem at all. But thank you Petar!

Of course, all objects in your artwork must have global color assigned first.
