Craft Swatches: Add a description or named color value

Regarding the generated Color Swatches.

It would be great if there was some way to have a description line under the Color name tag.

In that area users could add a named value such as Sapphire Blue. If you have some colors that are very similar a named value helps identify usage more quickly.

ALTERNATELY, could there be a way to pull the name from a Shared Style?

 

As we intend to use Craft Libraries to create component and brand libraries–names are easier to recall than hex values.

This is one area that Sketch seems lacking, naming color swatches, that the Craft plugin could help remedy.

Hi James, welcome to the InVision Community! You bring up a great point - Craft could certainly bridge the gap if the ability to add descriptions to the color swatches and/or pull the custom names from text styles were available.

That said, I've opened up a ticket so we can share your interest in this functionality with our Product team. Thanks!
