I am having fun watching your video on the monogramming tool, but I have a question:

It looks like your flower ornaments automatically generated in 3 colors, all of which are different from the color of the H and the stemstitch border.



How do you do that?
Mine are also 3 colors, but the leaves & vine are blue like my monogram (and stemstich border).

Hi Pascale,

I've asked the author of the video and stated that she might have used the Break Apart tool.

I think you select the motif object by using ALT + Select ornaments (by mouse).
Break Apart
Go to Color Object list - change all the green objects by clicking ALT + Shift (to select multiple) then change to color red.

Hope that helps.

Thanks,
Karla

Hi Karla - thanks for checking into this for me.
Well, I wasn't able to follow your exact steps but I was eventually able to isolate each leafy section of the motifs and change their color.

Here were my steps:
1. Select entire design (monogram, border + motifs) and Break apart. This separated the monogram & the border away from the motifs (the motifs were all still one big grouping).

2. At this point, when I selected the motif, I was unable to break apart further.

3. Clicking Alt + Shift + leafy sections (in color object list) didn't allow me to select multiple leafy sections at a time (ie. I could only select leafy sections from ONE motif).

4. However, Alt + ONE Leafy motif section - allowed me to 'isolate' one leafy motif section at a time & change its color. I simply repeated this for the remaining motifs. So, that worked - yay!

Alternatively, after that initial breakapart, I could have reassigned the colors in the Colorway Editor to achieve the same result
