Applying Colors from a Swatch Table

(see also: Swatch Tables)

Applying colors from a swatch table is quick and easy, but also offers a few different ways to do so. 

  • Select the objects.
  • Select the desired fill color in the swatch table.
  • Hold Ctrl and select to apply the color to the object's stroke.


  • Click and drag colors directly from the swatch table.


When you click and drag the mouse pointer over objects, its shape changes, depending on its location.
