Adding custom colors to the default colors

Adding custom colors to the default colors

Adding custom colors to the default colors

Quark supplies default colors which can be added to on an individual project. I have a couple of colors that I constantly use in nearly every layout. Is there a way to add these colors as permanent default colors so I don't have to regenerate them each time I start a new project?

RE: Adding custom colors to the default colors

Hi proproductsjim
     To add new colors in Quark, launch Quark but do not have a file open.
     Go to Edit, Colors and add and name your new colors, then after you have chosen and named the colors you want hit Save and then you can quit Quark, and when you open it the colors should be there from that point on when you start a new project.

Hope this helps

RE: Adding custom colors to the default colors

Terrific.....that sounds almost too easy.


RE: Adding custom colors to the default colors

...one thing to note with how quark colors work is to be aware of same name colors in one quark file to another...

...for instance, you can have the same name but a different color in certain situations...

...when you copy a native object from one file to another, quark will change the color to the target document color if it finds the same name between the two...

...this is a potential problem that has become unnoticed in my experience, and quark ought to have addressed it (as indesign does) very long time ago...
