Yes, just noticed the same. I can't access any colours from a linked library!

We have the same problem here. Yesterday, everything was fine but today the color palette from our library is suddenly gone. (Not only in documents that use the library but also in the library itself.)
I've upgraded to Sketch 67 this morning. Not sure if this is somehow related...

I just went back to an old version from yesterday and the color palette is still there. (We are using Abstract for versioning.) The only change I made today was renaming an artboard that was not sorted correctly because of a typo - and additionally the file was upgraded to Sketch 67. So I am guessing it's related to upgrading somehow. However, this could also be an issue in Abstract...
I guess I'll just re-create the color palette and see if the problem will appear again with the next upgrade.

Has this been resolved? We also had this problem on Sketch 65, then it appeared to be solved on 66 and now it's happening again on 67

Don't have a fix for the bug, but I use a plugin called Sketch Palettes to save my color palettes out to an external file, both for importing into new projects or for restoring to a file.

I've contacted both Sketch and Abstract support regarding this issue (as it seemed to be happening to us once we started using Abstract). It seems to be related to the way Abstract deals with different versions of Sketch documents, but it's a bug in Sketch and I was informed that they are working on a fix. (But no details about when it's going to be fixed.)

Thanks for the info. Hm, I'm wondering now if it might be that our library just isn't updated to the latest version of sketch since it hasn't been touched in a while. Maybe they did something to the way linked colors are handled. I will check this and report back.

Well, our library and working file are both on version 67.2 and there is still no color palette. Is this ever going to get fixed or even acknowledged by anyone from the team? Just going to keep bumping this till it gets fixed. Having to open the library and copy pasting hex codes is just stupid if there was a way to get to it before..

Actually just noticed that the tooltips in the color picker are only showing up for about 0.1 seconds. So it seems like someone messed up the whole color picker anyways.

After checking again its not that the color palette is not showing as I thought, but it just disappeared from our library as suggested (we also use Abstract). The pain is that we have around 200 colors that were all added and named! as document colors so we can use them in other files where the library is synced. Now we have to do them all again by hand. ffs

Same here :( Currently, we are only using colors that are not named so they are relatively fast to add. However, I'd like to name them to make it more clear where they should be used... but it does not really make sense to put any effort in this at the moment, if I'll have to redo it every time when there is a Sketch update.

The only workaround I found was to use the Sketch Palettes plugin (https://github.com/andrewfiorillo/sketch-palettes), export them from a previous version, and import them into the new version everytime Sketch is updated.
