Use this article to learn about colors in Animate


Use the color panel to modify the color palette of a FLA and change the color of strokes and fills, including the following:

  • Import, export, delete, and modify the color palette for a FLA file by using the Swatches panel.
  • Select colors in hexadecimal mode.
  • Create multicolor gradients.
  • Use gradients to produce a wide range of effects, such as giving an illusion of depth to a two-dimensional object.

For more information on colors, see Color panels in Animate and Working with Adobe Color panel.


Use the Swatches panel to import, export, delete, and modify the color palette for a FLA file. The swatches and color themes available in the Color panel are read-only. You can use a swatch or theme in your artwork, directly from the Color panel. However, to modify a swatch or color theme, first add them to the Swatches panel.

To know more about Swatches in Animate, read the article on Color panel.
