Hello,

I recently switched over to Fresco from Draw. Is there the ability to erase/clear all of a color on a layer in Fresco?

The situation: I am drawing in vector. Have a layer that is all blue. I started a new layer and drew some fancy yellow designs on it. Somewhere along the way, I ended up back on the blue layer and didn't realize it. Now half of my designs are on a new layer and half of them are on the blue. I really don't want to have to redraw them all. In Draw, with the erase tool selected, you could press & hold on a color in your drawing and all of that color (that was connected) would be erased. So I would just duplicate the layer and erase all of the blue and ta-da! only the yellow designs are left. Can you do something like that in Fresco?? In the end I can always just trace the designs onto a new layer, but I really would like to know if this is possible for future things. 

Thank you

I think the closest you would come to doing what you want would be to use the select tool. Duplicate the layer. Trace the shapes you want to keep, inverse selection with the More option then Erase. Then of course colour the yellow on the blue layer so that it is a solid layer again.

Thank you. I was afraid that something like this would be the only option available. For something less intricate, this option would work well enough, but I ended up just redrawing the designs.
