Copy link to clipboard
I would like to have a vector character with body, clothes and hair, for example, on my CC library.
Once I add this character to the Illustrator artboard, I would like to choose a different color for each part (body, clothes and hair) without expanding the vector.
Something like nesting assets inside the main asset and swaping these symbols to change the color. Does it makes sense? Is it possible on CC?
If you Alt-Drag the character from the CC library, you will have an editable placed copy.
You can use Edit > Edit Colors > Recolor Artwork to change the colors.
Actually I don't want to expand the vector because, for example, a member of the team may choose a wrong color.
I would like they may just choose another t-shirt from the library, so I will avoid wrong editions.
This is possible using libraries on Sketch or Figma, so I think it's a missing feature on Adobe CC.
You can drag the changed copy back to the library.
You can share your libray with your team and restrict them from editing.
