How to use color from document swatches on a gradient

Recommended Posts

Look like the gradient tool can't use document swatches for choose color and instead only use blended colors.

Is there a way to use the document swatches? I did something wrong?

Hi junihh,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
Click the gradient colour well in the context toolbar right above the work area, select the colour stop you want to edit, click the Swatches tab on top of the pop-up you just opened and select the palette you want to use if necessary, then click/select the colour you want to apply to that node. You can also pick an existing gradient to apply to the (whole) gradient you are editing.

But... they are not global?

After defining my colors as global to easily adjust all objects accurately at once, selecting them in an gradient, they are no longer global for this gradientobject? wth? 

And why is there not an palette for this? I searched every bit od UI and help for the gradient-tool or palette...
