Yeah! Noticed this too.

For what it’s worth, I think this may be for accessibility. Most colors don’t match between post its and the marker!

I agree that the red looks slightly orange to me, maybe not for all people!

2 red color looks different.

I have tested in 2 device the difference is there, it’s just a minor issue.

This Figma-Jam is great. I hope as the user base increase more tools in Figma-Jam will be added. Right now I am using Lucidchart. There web platform is very responsive and they have lots of tools to brain-storming technical ideas. I hope it will be availale in future.

Love to Figma Team.
