Color Schemes and Profile Styles

You can create nice looking visualizations using color schemes and profiles styles.

Use a Color Schema

To use a color schema:

  • Select one or more shapes on a canvas
  • Go to the Inspector on the right and click on Color Attributes to expand the panel
  • Click on the Select Color button
  • Select a color from the schema on the Color Selection Dialog
  • Close the dialog
  • If you move the dialog to the side, you can see your selected shape(s), so you can try out different colors.

Use a Profile Style

To use a profile style:

  • Select one or more shapes on a canvas
  • Go to the Inspector on the right and click on Color Attributes to expand the panel
  • Click on the Select Profile Style button
  • Select a profile style from a schema on the Profile Style Selection Dialog
  • Close the dialog
  • If you move the dialog to the side, you can see your selected shape(s), so you can try out different profile styles.
  • If you select a white profile style, the color of the shape (you have already selected from the schema on the Color Selection Dialog) will not change.
