How do I create Color Presets?

Looking to create Color Presets? It's easy with the Style Palette.

While marking up documents, you might want to use a color coding system to manage your notes, or maybe you just like a certain aesthetic.

While using Annotation tools such as text marking, typing, free draw, or shape, tap the colored circle on the Toolbar to open the Style Palette.

From there you can customize colors, fonts, opacity, and line weight. There are different options presented depending on the tool being used.

Each annotation tool has a variety of Color Presets that are unique to that tool. For example, here is the Style Palette for the Rectangle Tool.

To edit a preset, tap on the specific Color Presets you'd like to edit. Any changes made to color and opacity while a preset slot is selected will be saved in that preset slot for later use.

TIP: Need more preset slots? Try using Saved Annotations to create a library of your most common annotations.

By tapping Color or Fill Color you are then taken to the Color Menu. This window offers many different ways to make your color choices.

The default option is the Color Grid. This lets you choose your color from 120 preselected colors.

If you tap on Spectrum, you can tap anywhere across the color spectrum to select any color you wish!

If you tap on Sliders, you have access to zero in on the exact RGB values you wish to use, or enter a Display P3 Hex Color number manually.

Last, but certainly not least, from any of the color selection screens you can tap on the Color Picker Eyedropper in the upper left corner to select the exact color you want from the document.

TIP: You are also able to save color selections in the bottom section of each Color Selection Screen, so you can always return to it.

NOTE: Color Presets are specific to the device they are created on.
