Gradients and Global Colors

Recommended Posts

If you set one of the color nodes in a gradient using a global color swatch, it seems to copy out the color instead of referencing the global color.  As a result, if the global color is changed the gradient does not update.

It would be much better if the gradient updated along with other users of the global color swatch.

This would be great, I bet that it more than likely means a major rewrite of the code for the gradient tool. Unless the team has included this already and we haven't found out how to do it.

I am skeptical that this would take a "major" rewrite - maybe a minor one...  but that is ultimately for Serif to decide.

In any case, it would be a more correct level of functionality.
