Color Measurement and Analysis
previous previous screenshots home screenshots home next next previous previous screenshots home screenshots home next next
When you open a file which contains a list of color data, this list is represented by patches of the corresponding color in the "Patch view" tab. The patches are presented starting from the top-left and listed first from the top-down and then from left to right. The file data as well as derived data is presented in the "Tabular data" tab. Each file has its own window that can be set independently of the others. The screenshot above shows the "Re-map" menu which appears when you click on the black triangle; it contains commands which predominantly affect the patch layout. There are three menu items dedicated to target scramble and analysis, which can be used to optimize a target layout so that it can be easily measured when printed by scanning one row at a time, with an 1Pro ruler for example. You will find more information on target scrambling on the Target Scramble/Analysis page. Do a right-click (ctrl + click when using a one button Mac mouse) on any patch to access a menu to copy the patch data into the clipboard, as shown below; the Tab-delimited data can be pasted in separate spreadsheet columns or in a text document. The "Go into patch edition mode" menu item gets you into a mode where the patches can be moved, copied, extracted, deleted, and flipped. You can also assign preset colors to selected patches or swap two patches. The patch edition mode can also be accessed by selecting the "Edit patches" checkbox. You will find more info on the Patch Edition mode page. Press shift + right-click on a color patch to get an alternate contextual used to rename a patch or assign preset colors to this patch, i.e REPLACE the patch color; this is shown below on the other screenshot.
Selecting the "Rename the patch..." menu item shown in the screenshot above launches the dialog shown below. To edit a patch name, you can also click in any cell of the “Tabular data” “Name” column.
