Customizing a Color Palette

As with many Corel application components, manipulating Color Palettes couldn't be easier. For example, by clicking and dragging, you can display, hide, and move a Color Palette. You can also dock a Color Palette at the top, bottom, or side of the Application Window, or drag it onto the work area to create a floating Color Palette.

For quick access to menu commands, you can set the right mouse button menu of a Color Palette, to view either a pop-up menu, or set the outline color.

You customize Color Palettes by choosing the contents, color, and arrangement. You also can resize color swatches, view a Color Palette in multiple (up to seven) rows, and adjust the width of a Color Palette's border.

For information about customizing a Color Palette, such as opening, creating, editing, saving, and deleting a custom Color Palette, see "Customizing Color Palettes" on page 320.
