Sometimes I want to test out new colours using online sources like https://coolors.co/palette/a41623-f85e00-ffb563-ffd29d-918450. Is there a way to quickly exchange the colours in my document? I already found swatches. But there you have to manually change each color individually. Is there such a feature like in Powerpoint where you simply click on the colour scheme and it changes automatically like this: enter image description here

No, there are no automated colour themes like that in Inkscape. However you can kind of do something similar, not quite as automated though.

Assuming you have a bunch of elements of different colours, you can select one, right click it and do Select > Same Fill/stroke etc. Then you can change all the selected objects in one go.

An example

  • Thank you, I found that as well. But that still seems like a lot of manual work. I'm thinking about writing an extension for that.
