Is there a way to create a global color after the fact...For example...I created a document with many items with the same color...Can I add the color as a global color, and apply a color change to the rest of the document?

You didn't say if you are using Designer or Photo but this is Photo. Click on the menu in swatches,

Designer is pretty much the same.

 

There is an official video. Search for  -  Affinity Designer - Global, Spot and Overprint Colours

I think @LeviA is asking if it is possible to convert a color applied to several existing items to a Global color "after the fact" rather than how to create a Global Color. As far as I know, this is not currently possible but has been mentioned several times in the Feature Request forum as something many users would like to see added.

Ah, I see.

 

 Well, if you select all the layers you can apply it.

 

But not convert it from an existing colour, as you say.
