Global Color

Global Colors are easily accessible to all tools and brushes in Black Ink. This means that these tools and brushes can reference them when they need color data.

By clicking on the color square, you can choose a global color. It's possible to quickly swap the Foreground and Background colors by clicking on the double arrow located at the top right of the squares.
