The Color Palette

The Color Palette lists the colors defined for the current document. The Color Palette can be used to easily apply colors to objects and text in the document. To display the Color Palette if it's not shown, choose Show Color Palette from the Window menu.


If objects are selected with the Object tool, you can change the line and fill color of the selected objects.


If text is selected with the Text tool, you can change the line and fill color of the selected text.

Note: You cannot change the color of text by selecting a text object with the Object tool; this will change the text frame's line and fill color.

To apply color to the fill/stroke: Choose the Fill icon (the right icon) in the Color Palette then click on a color name, and to apply color to the line stroke, choose the Line icon (the middle icon). Choose the Both icon (the left icon) to apply color to the line and fill simultaneously.

To apply From/To Gradient Colors: Select the number 1 icon for the From color, choose from one of the available color options, then select the number 2 icon for the To color and choose from one of the available color options.

To apply a tint color: Enter the percentage of the color to use into the text box beside the number 2 icon and press Return to apply the tint.

To change a color: Hold down a Shift key and click on the color name to open the Edit Color dialog box, or click on the pop-up menu button to create a new color, edit any existing color, delete colors, append colors to the list and save the color list to an external color file.
