No changes changing a palette color applied to colour overlay effect

Recommended Posts

Unlike what happens when assigning a palette color to the filling of an object, if I assign a palette color to a colour overlay effect then I change the palette color, the objects with the assigned effect don’t change color.

(Tested with Affinity Designer 1.6.0 on High Sierra)

Hi Teo_


I think I know what you mean here, but I also don't expect the behaviour that you do. The Colour overlay effect does not have a concept of global colours so it will not update in the same way as regular object do when this is applied. And for non-global colours changing a swatch does not change he objects it's applied to, it needs to be re-applied.


I may be missing something here so feel free to add any further information but this seems to be working as designed
