Copying colors
You can copy an existing color to create a new one with the identical color definition. You can then edit the copy and rename it as required. This option is useful to create a series of similar colors.
To copy an existing color:
1. In a Properties dialog box such as Edge Properties or 2D Edge Properties, in the Color list, click More Colors. The Color Selector dialog box opens.
2. In the Color Selector, click the name of a color in the Colors list to highlight it.
3. Click Options .... The Options dialog box opens.
4. Click Copy (under Color) in the Options menu.
The selected color is copied in the Colors list, with the prefix Copy of added to the original name to form the copy's name. For example, if you select White in the Colors list and click Copy, a color Copy of White is created.
