Problem with NEW LAYERS Colors - Expanded
It has been posted but it seems it has been ignored. I suspect that it is due to the fact that majority of the ILLUSTRATOR TEAM are NOT real users and/or designers. If that offends you, face the truth of it or provide some reasoning.
Bottom line is that making new layers assigns different colors for the selected objects AND most of these colors are just useless! I have created a visual reference for the first 8 colors for comparison.
So, please with sugar and honey on top and a sweet chai on the side… I am NOT suggesting that you kill the colors; just add a choice that allows us, designers who make a living from use of software to create new layers with a default color of BLACK and if we need to, we can change it ourselves.
To make it even better, allow assigning a default color for new layers so that those eagle vision users who love working on a layer with YELLOW color outlines can always use that choice.
I am not making this suggestion because I started using ILL yesterday; I have used it since version 88, long before many of the team were walking and beta tested it.
