Styling

Penpot has a variety of styling options for each selected object that can be found at the Design panel.

Fill

Color fills can be added to artboards, shapes, texts and to groups of layers. A fill can be a custom color (HEX) or color style from a library.

To apply a fill you can use the color picker, the color palette or the color styles from a library.

You can set opacity for custom fills.
