Global swatch won't change

#1

My client has changed his mind about the site’s colour scheme. I have built it using a global swatch on the basis that if this happened it’d be easy enough to change… but I can’t change the swatch colour.

The tutorial videos on Youtube are based on the old UI, so I don’t know if something else has changed that I’m not doing?

At present I select an item (e.g. the CTA button in the hero section) which is styled using the global swatch called Theme-dark. I go in to the colour palette, the correct swatch is selected, and when I click another colour from the picker, it just changes the appearance of that element, it doesn’t update the global swatch as I think it’s supposed to.

Has something changed in the new UI??

TIA,

Mark

You have to select the global swatch and hit the pencil icon below where you can edit the title. Then pick your new color and choose save.
