    What's so terrible about setting up a few text styles in your document and change the color when you need to? I think symbols should allow you to set a color overwrite for chosen elements (instead of that stupid mask hack), but for just text I don't see a big issue here.

      You have to manage the same color for different types of objects. Why not one color setting to rule them all, independent of their type. I mean how many different shapes/strokes/fontsstyles are you using in you designs? It gets messy because of that. Left, Center, Right and then color for texts. So if you want to change the color because the client say so you have to do it 3 times instead of 1. That why ;-) and if you have to manage maybe 30 Textstyles or more within your project it gets annoying.

      After the kickoff and setting up the system you can set a range of colors depending on your project and move from there, Change one type of color everything with that color changes regardless of their type. So that i have not go to a sheet and change 10 styles or more.

      And yes the mask hack is stupid, trouble in handoff for android...
