Tajima DG software - Create a new Coloreel Percentage Striped Swatch April 04, 2023 13:20 Updated To create a striped (Percentage) swatch: Open a Coloreel Library Tab (Click Menu Bar - Manage - Coloreel Libraries) On the Coloreel toolbar, click the Add button +. Select Gradient or Striped Swatch from the drop-down menu that appears. The Swatches dialog opens. On the Swatches dialog, select the Percentage radio button. The Color/Percentage table opens on the right side of the dialog This table displays the current colors in the swatch (and their RGB values) alongside the percentage of each color (initially 50/50% by default) To add a new color, click the "Add row" button on the right side of the dialog. A new row will be added to the table for the new color. Repeat this step to add as many colors as you need. To select a color for any row, do the following: Click the small down arrow on the right of the color field. You see the Swatch Picker dialog. Select the color library you want to select the color from. The list of available colors in the table will change accordingly. Click a color from the library to select it. The Swatch Picker dialog will close, and the color will be applied to the selected row. You can also change colors by clicking on the small squares beneath each color slider. This will open the "Swatch Picker" dialog, and you can then select a new color from the Libraries as above. Repeat for any colors in the swatch you need to change. If required, you can remove a color change by selecting it and clicking the "Remove" button on the right side of the dialog. To choose the percentage of each color that occurs in the swatch, do one of the following: Click and drag the slider controls under each color on the color bar. Select the "Percentage" field in the table for the color you want to change and type in the desired value. Important note: Since the total of all the color percentages must add up to 100% when you change a percentage for one color, that change must be added or subtracted somewhere else. By convention, this addition or subtraction will be made to the last color of the swatch. Alternatively, you can click the Distribute evenly button to make each color an equal percentage. When you are finished adjusting the swatch, click OK to save it. Saving Coloreel Swatches. Once you have created a custom Coloreel Swatch, you can save it to a library for use with embroidery or text segments. The Swatch "Save as" dialog allows you to select both the library you want to save the swatch to and also to give it a name. Note: It is important to give a unique name to every swatch. Press Ctrl+S, or select File - Save, to save the Coloreel Library file with the new swatch included. Comments 0 comments Please sign in to leave a comment.
