No automatic variations of the brand colors option
When choosing brand colors there are different shades of the primary color (5 different shades) automatically used, but there should be an option to only use the exact shade chosen. Example: I chose #52748F as my color, but it automatically uses 2 shades lighter and 2 shades darker when I "brandify" the graphic and that is not ok. I chose that shade for a reason and I don't need other shades of that color. I need it to only use my color and any secondary colors that I chose. That's the whole point of choosing brand colors.

Canva allows this and my institution is considering switching from Adobe Express to Canva for this reason so we can design templates for different groups in our organization that are aligned with our brand identity.

THANK YOU!! I spent so much time putting a brand together for students to follow the branding of the university.. for them to use the primary color's generated shades. Then I have to explain how those colors aren't part of the brand and for them to not use the shuffle option.
Exactly! I need to use my brand's color palette, not an automatically generated set of tints and shades. It is NOT particularly useful to have the only automatically shared palette in a project be these tints and shades rather than our carefully-selected full brand palette.

Agreed! We have specific brand colors that we use and these automatic variations keep getting in the mix of our designs. The primary color variations should be removed or at least give us the option to turn them off.
