Re-arrange colors + Color Groups

It would be good if you could re-arrange colors in the settings after you have added them. For example if you use quite a lot of colors, shades of grey, shades of blue etc. If you then would like to add a new shade of blue it would be great if you could drag and drop that color into the other shades of blue colors. Now you need to start over again and add each color in your prefered order to solve this. 


It would also be good to be able to create several "Color groups" in the settings that you then can choose for your products or elements. Add names that explain their purpose, 't-shirt_base_colors', 't-shirt_print_colors', 'mug_pantone_colors' etc.For example you might need different color sets/groups for different products. In the product builder you could then choose from a drop down which color group to use for the product (general setting for images, text) and/or each element. Any update for the Color Group will instantly update the product color choices.  


Could alse be usefull to add the color names at the same time as you add the color, #000000 --> Black, instead of doing this afterwards in a different place in the settings.


Thanks

Hello there,


No color list in the FPD->Settings area is drag & droppable, or is it me?


Has it been reversed?

Thanks for the solution. This is a great help.


Would still be much easier to drag and drop but this is at least less time consuming.

I agree.

@Tomek Pluta. Did you know that you can paste a complet list of colors in one go? Like this:

#FFFFFF,#000000,#191919,#333333,#4E4D4D,#676766,#7F7F80,#999999


I realized this some time ago. So now I have a document with all my colors and can just rearrange the colors in the list as needed. Then you just delete all the colors you already have in your Color list and paste the string of text in the box and click "Add". Works great.

To add a color you have to create the whole list of colors from scratch. With a large number of colors, it takes several hours of work each time I want to add a color or change the order.

It was enough to add a drag and drop option

Color lists. There is no reordering and editing functionality for existing colors. Creating the color list from scratch is very time consuming when you want to add a color.

A colleague mentioned it above.

This would be a super helpful feature, because as you say there are sometimes many colors/materials (ink/vinyl/thread) and for each different type of product (thread color would not work on wood) and having tons of color options but re-adding/changing is currently a chore. Once you add 50-100 colors, have fun changing/re-arranging them once you get loaded with orders.
