Selecting the Current Colour of a Tool

While drawing and painting, you can let Harmony retain the last colour you selected for each one of the following tools:

Brush
Paint
Pencil, Ellipse, Line, Rectangle, Polyline

The Colour view has three swatches where you can set a colour for the Brush , Paint  and Pencil tools.

To unlink the storage swatches:

1. In the Colour view, if the storage swatches are linked, click on the Linking button to unlink them.

2. Click on the Brush storage swatch.

4. Click on the Pencil storage swatch.

5. In the Colour list, select the desired colour.
6. Click on the Paint storage swatch.

7. In the Colour list, select the desired colour.

If you prefer not to use this behaviour and have Toon Boom Harmony use the same colour swatches regardless of the selected tool, you can link the three swatches together.

To link the storage swatches:

1. In the Tools toolbar, select one of the following tool:
Brush tool
Paint tool
Pencil tools:
Pencil tool
Polyline tool
Line tool
Ellipse tool
Rectangle tool
2. In the Colour view, if the storage swatches are linked, click on the Linking button to link them.

Each time you select a new colour for your current tool, all the storage swatches are updated.
