Sparkle adopts a unified palette across the entire website, the color picker is a swatch of colors that can be used anywhere a color is needed: text, backgrounds, fills, shadows, borders, etc.

The purpose of the swatches is to help in maintaining color consistency across elements and pages. When the color value of a swatch is changed, all elements using the color in all pages will change.

If needed the expanded color picker has a system color well in the lower left corner, to access your system color picker’s palette or to sample an on-screen color.

For the purpose of maintaining a consistent color scheme across the entire site, all color wells in Sparkle are synchronized across elements. That is when you change the color value of a colorwell, all elements that use it will change to that color. The exception to this is the “current” color well, which is not synchronized.
