Subject: Modifying color books



You can modify your own color books and the color books that came with Intelli­CAD. If you modify a color book that came with CADdirect, it is recommended that you save it with a new filename first so the original color book is not overwritten.

To modify a color book

   1   Click Select Color in the desired dialog box, such as Layers, Drawing Settings, Properties, or Multiline Text.

The Color dialog box opens.

   2   Click the Color Books tab.

   3   Select the color book you want to modify.

   4   Click Color Book Editor.

   5   In Color Book Name, enter any changes to the color book name. This name appears in the list of color books on the Color Books tab in the Color dialog box.

   6   Do any of the following to modify pages or colors in the color book:

   Add pages — In the contents of the color book, click an existing page or color where you want to add a page. Define a color in the palette, enter the name of the page, and then click Add.

   Add colors — In the contents of the color book, click an existing page or color where you want to add a color. Define a color in the palette, enter the name of the color, and then click Add.

   Modify pages and colors — Select a page or color in the color book, define its new color settings in the palette, enter any changes to its name, and then click Modify.

   Delete pages and colors — Select a page or color in the color book, and then click Delete.

   Rearrange pages and colors — Select a page or color in the color book, and then click the up arrow () or down arrow ().
