Color Glyphs - Palettes and Colors

A font can contain one or more palettes that allow a host application to quickly change the color scheme. By using palettes you can make different color schemes that allow your font to use different colors with, for example a different background color.

The palette colors are global, so if you change a color which is assigned to several color members, then all those members will use the updated color. If you want a unique color for a specific color glyph member, then add a color to the palette and use that instead.

When in Color Mode you can assign colors to specific members, by selecting the Paint Bucket tool from the Drawing Toolbar and click on one of the color glyph members in the Glyph Edit window. You can change the current color by clicking on one of the palette entries in the Palette Toolbar.
