Ask DN: global color variable in Sketch?

over 8 years ago from , Digital Architect @ Next Riot

Hi all:

Just wanted to see if anyone knew of a way to get a global color variable in Sketch 3? Essentially, I want to be able to change all layers sharing the same color in one unified place.

  • shared styles is a no-go, because the color needs to be shared with text, borders etc.
  • can't be symbols for similar reasons

I tried the Sketch style inventory plugin but this doesn't allow me to select layers with a border or text matching the requested color.

Any suggestions, help, tips, tricks etc. are very much appreciated.
