Macro Monday: wOxxOm Hex Color

August 11, 2008

Anyone designing graphics for the Web can certainly appreciate the need to specify RGB color values as hexadecimal numbers. When you use color on a Web page, you use hex numbers. Yet when you are working in CorelDRAW, the colors are all specified as decimal numbers. In the end you get the same color, but translating between the two numbering systems can be quite frustrating.

That’s where today’s macro, wOxxOm Hex Color, can really save you time and trouble. It allows you to easily specify fill or outline colors using hex values. To get a better understanding of how the macro works, watch the movie showing it in action. For those developing art for the Web, Hex Color is a real lifesaver of a tool.
