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:
||Pencil, Ellipse, Line, Rectangle, Polyline
The Colour view has three swatches where you can set a colour for the Brush , Paint, and Pencil tools.
Using Independent Colours when Working with Bitmap Layers
When working in the Colour view, by default the current colour is active for both vector and bitmap layers. You can however, use different reference colours for each layer.
When using bitmap colours, there is no longer a link between the painted zones and selected colour. You can edit the colour as much as you want, but your drawing will not be affected. You can still select colours from your vector colour palette to use the same tint, but you will not create links between your drawing and the swatches.
How to use independent colours
||From the Colour view menu, select Colours > Independent Bitmap Colour.
Whichever colour you choose as the reference color is retained for that layer type.
