Create Your Own Palettes

July 9, 2009

I’m not sure the exact number of color palettes supplied with CorelDRAW, but there are at least fifty of them. Probably even twice that many. Yet there are times it seems like you just can’t find the color you want. Or maybe there are projects that require a specific set of colors. The good news is that there is an easy solution: create your own palettes!

Select Window | Color Palettes | Palette Editor to get the Palette Editor dialog box. Once there, you can modify an existing palette or simply create a new one from scratch. Add colors, delete colors, choose how the colors are sorted and much more. Over the past couple of years, I’ve create several custom palettes for my projects and it has made things go much more smoothly. Now I only have the colors I need in the palette and I can quickly select exactly what I want. For more details on the process as well as a movie showing the feature in action, get a copy of my CorelDRAW X4 Unleashed book.
