Compare screen colour with printed colour…

Have you ever found the colours on screen don’t look quite like the colours you output on paper?  Well, without going in to display configuration, a simple thing you can do is use this great Object and print a version of your pen palette so you know what the colours will be like on your device(s).

You can find the Object in Graphic Symbols 18> Pens and Colors 18 as highlighted below:

pens and colours 00


I configured mine to have the same columns as the Pen dialogs in ArchiCAD so it looks as follows:

pens and colours 01

…and if you look closer you will see the Pen Number and RGB values:

pens and colours 02

If you switch to Style 2 it will also draw a section of line so you can see the thickness of the pen.
