Is there a way to create a custom Color Pallette Group?

 

I looked in the CDF and dont really see how these grouping are set...

 

I'd like to create a group for our company standard colors to make it easier for our users to locate quickly.

I'm not sure about creating a custom pallette, but you can edit the "favorites". If you open the CDF file in a plain text editor, you will see that some colors have a number listed out to the right of the color data. These colors will show up in the favorites section; 0 will be the top left corner and 59 will be the bottom right corner.

Yes you can. At the bottom of the color menu you save a the layout as a cdf (color definiton file) and have everyone point to it.  The ability to do this can can be found here.

 

Color Setup

 

The save is in the options box.

@ScottFelber,  iknow we can create a custom CDF...  But within the CDF or the Pallette I'm looking to define groups...  See my orig Post's image.   Note the groups: Gray, Principal, Vibrant, etc...   

 

Can I edit, add, remove these groups?  Idealy i would add a new group "Company STD Colors"  and then list or top 10 used company standand colors...

 

?

Yes

  1. Choose the color you want in the Palette area
  2. Paste to the Favorites box to replace the color (Choose No)
  3. Save at the end to your new palette

 

Still cumbersome

Many have saved old palettes (For example ugv18) or have customized the colors to use as Favorites. This would mean, in an assembly, using a different color palette, the part will look different. This would be a mixed environment.

 

I prefer the changing of the Favorites

I think this is a better option.

If you want a new color other then what is available, consider editing a color that is similar to the color you want.
