Creating new named colors

If you want to use the same color in different parts of the drawing, and there is any chance you might want to change that color in future, it is highly recommended that you create a named color. This is easy in Xara:

Select an object whose color you want to use and then click New named color in the Color editor.

Click to create a new named color

Give the color a suitable name, like "car color" and click create. You will see the new color added to the Color Line.

You can now apply this color to any object the usual way, by drag-dropping it from the Color Line or just clicking (or right clicking to use it as a line color) to apply as the fill color.

When you edit a named color, all objects that use this color will change.
