The current colors are really ugly, and intrusive. The Bright colors are distracting from the main artwork... I recommend soft pastels instead of the current options (something that doesn't contrast too heavily from the UI interface too)

Hey Izzy,

There's currently a difference between the layer colours on Windows and macOS. I need to find out which one we're sticking with because they need to be the same if you're passing documents between operating systems.

Once I find out, I'll update you. Cheers :)

I know that we are using the Adobe layer colours for Windows so that when you import a PSD, the colours match. I'm not sure if we'll get the ability to customise our own. I can ask!

I just think they should be more subtle like the Adobe palette.
I also think it shouldn't sit over the ✓ box only. It should span the entire name.
If this is an issue then perhaps do what Pixelmator Pro did? (attached)

Hopefully, an update will allow us to both customise layer colours and add to the quantity

I'll disagree on this point. because consistency in user experience is vital for any application - especially one targeted at designers and illustrators. A carefully well-designed palette would be the best thing. Maybe just double the amount of available colors instead.

Windows is using the Adobe palette. After I saw your post I logged this with the developers and it looks like it has already been fixed.

In that case, perhaps it would be best if we would lose the ability to customize our toolbars and move around the studio palettes too, so that we all have the same tools in the same places?

As a default, yes.

I'm going to meet you half way here: I would suggest it be full strength under the checkbox then have an opacity gradient that extends from there to about 2/3 of the way though the area where the name could be.

I agree with the general sentiment that to have the colour under the check box is too crude. I'm not talking about the colour itself but the size and its placement. I' d rather have something more subtle, like a colour strip to the right of the checkbox.

No need to go to extremes. I'm not suggesting taking away all customizability, the motivation is to keep the UX less distracting.
This is just from a professional use-case standpoint where we want to spend less time on tweaking interface elements.

Maybe making it a default is a good compromise, and allowing people to change this in the application menu for thier particular setup. So it doesn't interfere with other users setups when sharing documents.
Example:

  • "Set color 1" can be a pastel on my interface
  • "Set color 1" can be neon on someone else's

Agreed, this would be the way to do it; I see no value in making this per-document.
