Customize the menu palette
The little palette on the bottom right of the menu displays 64 colors by default. If you’re working on 16-color graphics, ¾ of the space is wasted. So, Grafx2 allows you to set the number of colors in this palette : less colors will mean bigger buttons, which are more comfortable to use.
To edit this setting, open the ‘Secondary palette menu’, by right-clicking the ‘Pal’ icon.
You can set the number of rows, the number of columns, and if the colors are ordered from left to right, or from top to bottom.
Less than 256 values in RGB components
By default, Grafx2 allows you to set RGB values of palette with 256 levels of precision, but if you are drawing graphics for older technologies (or inspired by them), you may want a rougher scale: the relevant setting is “RGB scale”.
To edit this setting, open the ‘Secondary palette menu’, by right-clicking the ‘Pal’ icon. Example values that you can use are 64 (VGA) 16 (classic Commodore Amiga, 4096 combinations), or even 3 (Amstrad CPC)
A smaller scale means that the RGB sliders in the palette are more blocky, they move by bigger units, and they show numbers from zero to "scale" minus 1.
In HSV mode, the palette sliders are not affected, however the program will really search the closest-match RGB by taking the setting into account.
