I downloaded few icons from materialdesignicons and flaticon, and they wont react to any recoloring actions, i.e. - eyedropper, applying swatch color, gradient tool etc

I usually download icons from the web and in Figma it displayed as vector shape within a group, which i need to either ungroup or flatten in order to apply fills and strokes properly. 

Yet in Designer it's displayed as a vector shape with a bit extended boundaries, and the "ungroup" command isn't working with these icons and there is no such thing as "flatten" command. What should i do?

Hi dennisch, i see 2 traps:

 

1.

You can not re-color (via adjustment-layer)  a complete opac or white object.

2.

If you place a SVG in your current project it appears as "embedded document". You need a doubleclick on its layer to open the curves in a separate window. project. Than you tweak as you want.
