Hi,

I was just finishing up one of my tours so added my usual company plug which is an SVG graphic, and am now noticing that after the most recent update, the color changer is no longer finding all of the colors within the SVG graphic.

Here's a video to show:

Any suggestions? Thanks!

I've seen this happen before, usually it's an svg I've downloaded or been sent. I open it in Illustrator and resave it, sometimes you need to ungroup.

I just tried out a complex svg file https://tonyredhead.s3-ap-southeast-2.a ... t_orig.svg and it found and changed all of the colors

If it was working and now not, I will be interested to see the SVG code.

I was able to figure out a solution using some of Tony's suggestions.

I ungrouped the svg, resaved...same issue. I noticed though that it was only black 000000 that was having the issue so I changed the black to a different color and Voila!

Seems that for whatever reason, the color changer is not picking up 00000 but that's no problem if I just change the value to anything else.

Sorry Hopki, when I edited the color of the SVG I simply overwrote the original file so it is history. Next time I'll be sure to make a back up of the issue just in case someone wants to see it.

Thanks to both of you for your input and assistance!!
