Is it possible to make an effect (in this case a brush stroke) automatically inherit its color from a solid? It doesn't have to be a solid per se, but I need it to be able to inherit its color from somewhere it can be easily changed, so that all effects within the project that have that inheritance will automatically change their color to the assigned parent color.
