    Default Changing a color globally and palettes

    Hello,

    It's been a while since I used Xara and I have two questions and I'd appreciate some help:

    1.- How can I modify globally the color of all objects of certain color without having to select the objects? for example everything that is red I want it now pink ...
    2.- How do I customize the standard palette that is at the bottom of the screen or at least add my own colors for later use

    Thank you!

    Palosanto, here is how I create palettes: https://www.talkgraphics.com/showthr...-Theme-Colours.

    For a Global Red change, open then Names gallery > Used Colours, pick Red.
    All Red objects are selected.
    Drag a Pink colour from the Colour Bar onto one of the selection.
    This covers the case when you do not have any Named Colours.

    Gary, not for selecting objects but to add the colors to the bottom palette similar to Egg's second video. "Palette from photo" doesn't work for xara objects ...
    I suppose I could make a bitmap of the design first and then make the palette with it? Is this the way? Thanks

    palosanto, try creating a Palette from any image first.
    This will give you a starter of 5 named Theme colours with some Shades.

    Open the Colour Editor and pick a Theme from the drop-down.
    Then use the Colour Editor > Colour picker and move and drop over the Shape colour.
    Do the same for the other Themes.

    You can create any number of named Colours as you like by hand as well.

    I already offered up a solution in Post#4 above.

    Whatever approach, you can save off to an <anythng>colorscheme.xar and drop it onto any other design page or create a colour bar of blobs off-page with named Colours created and make this into a Template.
    The former is the most useful approach.

    You could create you own palette file using:
