To select the colours to use
1) On the Options menu, click Colour Palette.
2) Add, move, or remove control points in the red, green, and blue colour bands, as follows:
- To select a control point, click it.
- To select multiple control points, hold down the SHIFT key as you click control points. Alternatively, drag a marquee box around them. Note that you can drag across one or more colour bands.
- To select all control points on a colour curve, with the pointer above the colour band, click the right mouse button to open the pop-up menu, then choose Select All.
- To toggle the selection of a control point, hold down the CTRL key as you click it.
- To add a control point, hold down the CTRL key as you click at the location where you want the point added.
- To remove a control point, select the control point, then press the DEL key or choose Delete from the Colour Palette window's Edit menu. You can also choose Cut from the same menu if you want to place the control point in a different location in the same colour band or a different colour band (using one of the Paste commands described below).
- To move a control point, drag the control point. Hold down the SHIFT key as you drag a control point to restrict its movement either vertically or horizontally. The first direction you drag is the constrained axis.
- To copy control points, select them, choose Copy from the Colour Palette window's Edit menu, then paste them in one of the following ways:
- To replace all of the existing points with the copied control points, choose Paste from the Colour Palette window's Edit menu. The control points are pasted into the same bands from which they were copied or cut.
- To add the copied control points to a colour band's existing control points, click the right mouse button above the colour band to open the pop-up menu, then choose Insert Paste.
- To replace a colour band's existing control points with the copied control points, click the right mouse button above the colour band to open the pop-up menu, then choose Replace Paste.
- To undo or redo an editing operation, choose Undo or Redo from the Colour Palette window's Edit menu. Fractal eXtreme's Colour Palette window supports multiple levels of undo and redo.
- Fractal eXtreme remembers colour palette changes, even when the Colour Palette window is not open. For example, if you open a fractal that replaces the current colour palette, you can open the Colour Palette window and choose Undo from its Edit menu to restore the previous colour palette.
