Color Libraries let you organize color options to use on multiple templates at the same time. Color Libraries can be applied to different personalizable elements from Customily, such as:

  • Text Color for production files
  • Text Color for previews
  • Vector color (when they are in single color mode)

Once you assign a library to a Customily element, every change you make on the library will be reflected in that element.
For example, let's say you want to offer 5 new color options for your embroidered products. If you edit the library that has all the embroidery colors and add 5 new colors to it, all the texts that use this library will be updated across all templates!

To create a color library

1. Open the libraries menu as shown here

2. Select Color Libraries Tab

3. Click Add Library to create a new library

4. Name your library, choose a color mode and click create to start choosing the colors for the library

5. Once the library is created you will see it on your library list. Click Edit to see the library and start adding colors to it

To add color options to your library

1. Click Edit to see the library and add, delete or modify color options in it

2. To add a new color option click Add color

3. Choose the color option you are going to add. If this is the first color you are adding to the library, then it will be option 1

If you want to assign a color to a different option, you can either type the option number, or click the arrows next to it to change options.

4. Select the color from the color toolbar and click Create Color to save the color into that option.

5. You'll now see the color was saved into option number 1. Repeat this as many times as colors you want to add to the library. At the end of the process, you'll have something like this:

Every extra color you add will be automatically added to the following option. For example, if you already have 4 options set, the next color you add will by default be added in color option 5, unless you change that manually of course.

To edit a color library

1. Select any library you want to edit from your libraries list and click the Edit button

2. Once inside the library, you can either add new colors, edit existing colors, and delete existing colors.

To clone a color library

1. Select any library you want to edit from your libraries list and click the Clone button

2. The cloned library will appear at the end of the list, with the text "cloned" added to its name. To edit that library's name just click the name to make it active, type any new name you want and hit enter.
