Edit and Add Colours

The colour range editor allows the manufacturers colour ranges to be viewed and altered. It is possible to create new colour ranges and adjust colours of existing ranges.

Any adjustments will take effect next time the program starts and any new colour ranges will be added automatically to the menus.

For those with access to colour measuring equipment, the colour range editor can import RGB colour values from ASCII text files. There is a special import for reading text files that originate from an Apple MAC computer although they must have been transfered to a PC compatible disk.

Care should be take with any adjustments made by eye since the factory values are measured and computer screens are not able to show colour to the degree of accuracy of the measured values. The value of measured values is that although some colours can't be displayed accurately by computer screens, any scanned image can still be accurately matched to give the correct thread number.
