You can change the color of shapes, lines, backgrounds, or text using the color picker (or eyedropper) tool. This is useful when you want to select an exact color from an object on the canvas, or match a color palette, such as your organization’s brand guidelines, or ensure consistency with your icon colors.

Note: The eyedropper tool cannot be used to change icon colors. For steps on how to change an icon’s color, see this article.
