Change VECTOR color per colorway

More

Is there a way to change the vector background (not the work-area) to reflect different colorways?

Rather than having a shirt or cap etc as my background, I simply created a vector shape for my keyfob.

One keyfob option is red; the other option is black keyfob, and depending on which background I use, I have different colorway assigned.



Currently, I duplicated the vectors and hide the one that doesn't 'belong'.
Is this the best way to do it?

Thanks!

Assuming the vector artwork was created with EmbroideryStudio. I have a rather stupid workaround to achieve what you are after.

In short, assign one of your colour chip (say #27) as the colour for the vector. (and make sure you use that chip #27 for all your vector object colour on all your colourways)

Steps:
1. change the vector back to tatami fill (or satin fill), and assign a colour chip to it.

(when you want to compare your design in different colour way)
2. select a new Colourway, and change the (said) object back to vector.

(for next Colourway, remember to start with step 1.)

A rather stupid workaround, but you can save the colours of the vector object (using colour chips in Colourway), just quite a few steps.

Thanks Antony ... I will give that a try.

Do you have a suggestion for this: How do I print this thread ... without including the "related topics" section right in the middle of everything?
This was a short one so I was able to do screenshots & print out like so:

Actually I do, however it's a bit geeky (i.e. CSS hack).

In short, the style sheet is not optimised for printing. (We should make a request.)

Anyhow, here's the outline of the hack:
You might want to make sure Develop menu is enabled in Safari. (Preferences > Advanced, and tick "Show Develop menu in the menu bar")
Right click on the Related Topics and select Inspect Element

In Wed Inspector window (separate window or lower pane of Safari),
Go back up a few lines where you see
<div class="well well-small">

inside the quote (between quotation marks), add
hidden-print
It should look like
<div class="well well-small hidden-print">


(This method should work similarly with other browsers.)
