applying color styles
A color style is a
color you save and apply to objects in a drawing. Since an infinite number of
colors are available in CorelDRAW, color styles can make it easier to apply the
exact color you want.
When you create a
color style, the new style is saved to the active drawing. After you create a
color style, you can apply it to objects in the drawing. You can also delete
color styles if you no longer require them.
One powerful feature
of color styles is that you can create a shade or series of shades based on a
color style. The original color style is referred to as the “parent” color, and
the shades are referred to as “child” colors. For most of the available color
models and palettes, child colors share the same hue as the parent color but
have different saturation and brightness levels. With the PANTONE MATCHING
SYSTEM, PANTONE Hexachrome, and Custom spot color palettes, child and parents
are linked to one another but have different tint levels.
CorelDRAW has an
Auto-create feature for creating color styles from selected objects. For
example, you can import a drawing and Auto-create color styles from an object in
the drawing. When you create color styles from an object, the color style is
automatically applied to that object so that if you decide to change a color
style, the object’s related color will also be updated. For more information on
importing files, see "Importing files."
When you use the
Auto-create feature, you can choose to create few or many parent color styles.
After you have converted all colors to color styles, you can, for example, use
one parent color to control all red objects, or many parents, one for each shade
of red in the drawing.
When creating child
colors, colors added from a color-matching system are converted to the parent
color’s color model so that they can be grouped into appropriate parent-child
