Delete or modify an existing Palette, Pattern or Color

Deleting Pallets, Patterns or Colors

You cannot delete a palette, pattern or color once it has been created.

But you can change it in any way you like by editing it - see below.

If you find that the badge or thumbnail does not change to show how you have modified the palette or pattern - hang in there - it does change, but not always immediately.

How to edit an existing palette or pattern

Once you have created a palette or pattern, you can still change it. You can only edit your own work.

Go to the palette's or pattern's page. Click on the "Edit" button at the top right of the page. The page that opens will allow you to change the title, or re-mix the colors. You can add it to a Group, or edit the rest of the information such as its inspiration link etc.

When you are done, click on the "modify" button at the bottom of the page

But the thumbnail and badge stays the same even if I modify it :(

If you find that the badge or thumbnail does not change to show how you have modified the palette or pattern - hang in there - it does change, but not always immediately.

Editing a color

You have more limited editing powers with colors: You can only change its title, not the color itself.

Be careful when changing a color's name however, as someone else may have used it in their palette because it has a specific name. You can check that by looking at the list of palettes on that color's page.

You cannot edit a color once it has been created. But you can assign different colors to an existing palette or pattern.

I am trying to edit the first pattern I have made but there is no modify button whatsoever. I can only change the name, description, tags, and category. :(
From the pattern page, click on "edit this patten", which is right above the "love" button. Then, click on a different template to change the pattern, click on the colors to change them. After saving, you may need to clear your cache to see the changes.
How do I toggle palette widths?. i see the option under some palettes but not under the ones i have created. I have tried the forums but can't find an answer.
I'm thinking about changing my user name and moving my colors & palettes to the new account, however I was wondering about my colors I've had created (or discovered?). Is there a way to move the colors automatically? If I move them , would they automatically be named by my new username or they still named by my old user name?
