Color is one of the most crucial elements of illustration and graphic design. In Linearity Curve, any path and shape can be edited, allowing you to alter its color and style.

Inside the Fill section of the Style Tab, you can access the Color Picker ic-color-picker icon by tapping the Color Well (A) inside the first subsection. To change the color of your shape, you can either set the color value by using the HEX Color button (B). On the right, you also find the Alpha channel (C) to set the opacity of your color from 0 to 100%. You can also pick the color from the canvas by using the Eyedropper ic-eyedropper icon button.
