    When I go to change a swoosh that is for example blue by default and try to change it to yellow all I get is what appears to be a blue a yellow mix. How do I remove the default color and get it to yellow?
    Thanks, I know its probably a lame question but I honestly cant find out how to do this :bonk:

    great question.. I dont think it can be done... but if so, I want to know how to do that, too!

    I have tried changing the colors of swooshes and orbs that are already a color but all it does is try and add the new color I select onto the existing, and I usually end up with a gray or black color.

    If this can be done.. perhaps we need a tutorial on how? :)

    You can't actually change the color of the swoosh ... by this I mean if you have a red swoosh and want to change the color of it to yellow it won't work.

    what happens is that you are adding color to the current one ... so your red swoosh with yellow added will probably start to look a bit orange.

    Does this make sense?

    Darrin...

    here's a response from Marc.. one of the programmers for TLC:

    so.. if you really want a different color you may have to export the swoosh to some other graphics application, change the color then import it back into your design.
