Add styles to the Library.

Post by toymaker1 » Sat Nov 09, 2019 9:44 pm

I want to create a color lbrary of custom swatches for permanent use in my Moho projects.
This is easy in Adobe Animate, but I do not know how to do this in Moho Pro. Can anyone advise me how to add styles (i.e. custom color swatches) to the Library for permanent use?
I have got as far as creating a Style, consisting of a custom swatch, in the Styles Panel, but it dissappears when I close the program.
I want to retain custom swatches in a permanent color library.

Any advice greatly appreciated.

Styles only appear in the Styles panel if there is a shape with this style applied (or has been, in the current project). So you need to store a project in the library which contains some objects with your styles applied, and import this into new projects.

Swatches are not stored with styles, nor in the file. You add them to the "swatches" folder of your custom content folder, and then they can be selected in the swatches dropdown (after restarting Moho).
