Color Labels

It would be really nice if we could save our own custom color palette when coloring tool containers and comments.

I use colors to define the purpose of my tool containers and it would be much easier if I could select a labeled, reusable color.


This would be really useful for establishing and following department style guidelines.

12 - Quasar

An easy workaround to this limitation is to create a template file that only contains examples of the containers and comments using your standard formats. 


Designer allows you to copy and paste these elements from one workflow to another. 



11 - Bolide

+1 think this would help us standardise the use of the canvas amongst different teams.

8 - Asteroid

This would be extremely helpful when creating reports for multiple clients that would like us to use their branded colors. My custom colors palette was filled long ago.

I would like to see the palette based off the tool category palette with some opacity added. Currently, you add your own custom palette, but it is at the user level and cannot be shared. You also have to be cautious so you don't overwrite an existing color.
