You can apply colors to objects from within the Measurements palette, and also create colors directly in the palette.

  1. Choose the Classic tab in the Measurements palette
  2. Click the Color drop-down menu to apply a color to an object
  3. Choose the New option to open the Edit Color dialog box and create a color to use in your project.
  4. Enter a name in the Name field and specify the color model for your new color.

Note : You can choose from several color models and from a number of color matching systems when you create colors. If you have colors you use frequently, you can create colors for the default color list in the application when no files are open. You can create up to 1,000 default or article-specific colors.
