Choosing a color from the onscreen Color Palette

The quickest way to add colors to an object is by clicking on a color swatch within any of the on-screen Color Palettes. One feature that is unique to all on-screen Color Palettes, is that they let you augment the current color of an object with a new color. For example, you can add some red to a yellow object to create an orange object. Spot colors in the on-screen Color Palette are marked by a dot in the bottom-left corner of the color swatch.

1 Select the object with the Pick tool.

2 Do one of the following:

• Click a color in the on-screen Color Palette to change the fill color.
