- From app Home screen, upload some art.
- In the layout/settings screen, enter settings for the colors in that art.
- Use the Add Artwork button to upload the same file again
- The new copy of the artwork does not inherit settings from the existing copies of the artwork.
Expected: If you add new art containing a color which is already defined in the layout view, the new art will inherit the existing settings.
Has it always been like this? Not inheriting settings makes it a lot harder to do some things.
For example, I am trying to cut sample swatches, with different text on each swatch. I have one file which includes all of the variants and my hope was to upload the file, delete what I didn’t want to cut, switch materials, re-upload, etc. This doesn’t actually work, because settings are not inherited. And auto-save means that every time I delete an unwanted item, that operation can’t be easily undone.
I also tried doing this with copy-paste to refresh the master view, and pasting in art DOES inherit settings as you would hope–but some other issue wiped out the clipboard.
Whether or not the current operation is by design, it seems that adding via clipboard or Add Artwork upload should work the same way, too.
