Changing stencil colors

Step 1:

Select the stencil(s) you’d like to change. (Remember to select multiple stencils, hold down the shift key and click on each of the stencils you’d like to select.)

Step 2:

On the Style inspector, select the “Fill” icon (Figure 8). This gives you all your fill options.

Step 3:

Click the “fill color” box (Figure 8) to open the color palette. This is the same palette you used to change the background.

Step 4:

Select a color.

Figure 8


If a solid color is too boring for you, the “Fill style” area will allow you to create different effects, such as linear blend, radial blend, double linear blend and double radial blend.
