Customizing display colors and printing colors
Customize the display color
You can customize the display colors on the "Edit Palette" window after clicking the "View/Display color settings...".
If the display color is changed, you can save it as another Palette with a name.
* Before Ver.11.0.0, there is only one palette. Although the changed display color cannot be saved in the palette, it can be used after saving the project file.
The setting of each color is displayed in "RGB(r,g,b)" format.You can specify the proportion of each color element of red, or green or blue using a number from 0 to 255.
For example, basic colors are described as below.
|Black||RGB(0, 0, 0)|
|Red||RGB(255, 0, 0)|
|Green||RGB(0, 255, 0)|
|Blue||RGB(0, 0, 255)|
|Purple||RGB(128, 0, 255)|
|Yellow||RGB(255, 255, 0)|
|Orange||RGB(255, 128, 0)|
Since the cell background color of each item is shown by the color specified by RGB values, you can see from the cell background color what color the combination of the RGB values represents.
To change the color setting, you can either respecify the RGB values directly in the cell or use the color setting dialog.
The following describes how to use the color setting dialog.
Example: Changing the color of working time
Click "Palette" in the object window. Scroll down the Display color tab in the properties window and find the item "Chart - working time".
When you find the item "Chart - working time", click on the [...] button displayed when you select the value of the cell to open the color setting dialog.
In this dialog, you can either select a color from the "Basic colors" list (1) or specify a color in the color matrix (2) and (3) on the right.
This time, since we only want to darken the color slightly, move the slider to the right of the color matrix downward a little.
After you select the color, view the "Color|Solid" box (4) to check how the color is displayed and click the OK button.
The value of the property is changed to the RGB values of the color you selected in the dialog.
From Ver.11.0.0, the printing color will take the display color palette, and there is no printing color palette. (Main menu "File" - "Print color settings" is disable from Ver.11.0.0)
But the print color palette also can be used in following situations.
* The project file is created before Ver.11.0.0
* Add a new palette named with "User" in Palette for upward-compatible, and the "User" palette is selected.
Open the print color palette
Choose 'File - Print color settings' from the main menu.
This allows editing of the colors which will be used when printing tables and charts.
The default setting for colors in the print palette is the same as for the GUI palette, but a little lighter.
