Switch counterchange symmetry on the fly. To complement the 17 primary symmetry controls, the new Color Symmetries pane offers 46 secondary symmetry buttons that let you combine symmetry operations with color reversals in all mathematically possible ways. The secondary controls are split into groups of no more than five that conveniently swap as appropriate for your primary symmetry selection—so navigating this sea of possibilities is a breeze.
Customize the canonical counterchange operations further and readily produce a stream of patterns by applying your choice of color reversals within a tile and, for some symmetries, by reversing rows and/or columns of tiles too.
Replicas have always been a powerful yet easy-to-master tool. They give you transformed copies of your motif that are hot-linked to the originals. And now you can paint your live copies in different styles and colors too.
Invert RGB or CMYK colors in your motif and immediately breathe stability and balance into your pattern. The inversion is dynamic—when you recolor a seed element, SymmetryWorks automatically replaces its inverse.
