Hey there fellow affinity users. i have a simple question regarding Affinity Designer. Is there a a way to either copy a a color gradient or if possible to save it to use later? I typed out some text, went to fill and changed the color to a gradient that goes from light blue to pink. then i realized i need to use it again and i don't know how to copy it. i cant remake it because it wont be the same... :/


Also if possible it would be nice to maybe save it as a custom one if possible to use again down the road..

You can use the Swatches Panel to store document, application, or (on Macs) system color palettes, which can include gradient swatches.

So for example, you could use that panel's "Add Application Palette" option to create a new empty palette available in all your Affinity Designer documents, & add the gradient to that, or just a document palette if you want to use it only in that document.
