1. In the Colour view, select the colour to copy.

2. In the Colour View menu, select Colours > Copy or press [Ctrl] + [C] (Windows/Linux) or [⌘] + [C] (Mac OS X).
3. In the Palette list, select the palette in which you want to paste the colours.

4. In the Colour View menu, select Colours > Paste as New Colours or press [Ctrl] + [V] (Windows/Linux) or [⌘] + [V] (Mac OS X).
If you want to paste the colour values of the copied swatch over an existing colour swatch,
select Colours > Paste as Values.

Copying Colours from Another Palette

In Toon Boom Harmony you can quickly copy a colour value from a palette in your scene to a selected colour swatch in a different palette.

To use Copy Colour From:

1. In the Colour view, select the colour swatch you want to copy the colour into.

The selected colour swatch will immediately change to this new colour.
