BioRender’s illustration team has generated a number of pre-set color options for each icon, making it easy to design a visually cohesive figure. You can change the color of an icon at any time while illustrating. 


Changing the color of a single icon

  1. Select the icon you’d like to change. 
  2. From the top menu, click Icon Color, then select your preferred color. 

Changing the color of a grouped icon

If you’re working with grouped icons, you can change the color of individual components. 

  1. Double-click on the grouped icon to enter the group, and select the individual icon you want to change. 
  2. From the top menu, click Icon Color, then select your preferred color.  

Bulk-edit “grouped” icons of the same type

If you’re working with a group of the same icon, you can modify their colors at once. Simply click on the group and choose a new icon color from the top menu.

Bulk-edit individual icons of the same type 

To edit a number of the same type of icons at once:

  1. Right-click on one of the icons you want to change.
  2. From the drop-down, click on Select All Same Icons
  3. From the top menu, click Icon Color and choose your preferred color.
