Freehand9 color control for almost all through the Color List (Color list) and the Color Mixer (palette) to achieve the two panels, respectively, see Figure 9 and Figure 10.
Figure 9 Figure 10 Color List panel Color Mixer panel Color List panel of the role of Color List panel color menu is displayed and the color applied to the object up. The panel is divided into two parts: Part button and color display box. Some buttons from left to right are: the internal filling, filling stroke, the overall fill, Option (option) buttons and New Color (new colors) box. Here, the "internal fill" button which is designed to fill in the target internal color : "stroke-filled" button color will be applied to the object contour lines: "the overall fill" button will apply the color at the same time the object contour and the internal: "Option (option) button" is used to open the control panel menu : "The new color scheme" box for the establishment of a new color.
Color display box provided in the default state of four colors: None (colorless), White (white), Black (black), Registration (set-color-like - this is when registration for the printing of color proofs) .
Directly from the color you can drag a color box shows the outline of the object or objects within the online to change the color of the object; If you need the color does not appear in color display box, you can also Color Mixer panel Drag the selected color to the "new colors" box, then the color display box will show you the new color selected.
Color Mixer panel Color Mixer panel's role is to obtain the color. In Freehand9, the deployment of the color on the Color Mixer panel, which provides CMYK, RGB, HLS three color modes to allow you to define color.
Color Mixer panel Mixer and Tints, including two sub-panels:
Mixer panels in several color Patterns and color selector Windows system custom colors, five button panel, from left to right followed by CMYK mode, RGB mode, HLS model, Windows system colors, Add to Colors (added to the color table) button. Here, the main box by a numerical value to define the color, the color panel box below shows the changes in the definition. Tints panel color saturation control, it can be adjusted using the current color, but also can adjust the color of color table.
Note: Freehand9 support drag the color, you only need to deploy in the Color Mixer in good color, and then drag the color directly to the object; of course you can also use the Eyedropper (dropper) tool to the object in your favorite until the color in the Color Mixer panel.
We know this more than the deployment of monochrome and color filled, then we have to learn complex filled.
Inspectors select the Fill panel panel (you can by clicking the System Menu Window> Inspectors> Fill command to open). Fill panel controls the complexity of filling all the way Freehand9. You need to do is just fill in the Fill panel menu, select the appropriate mode option, and accordingly in the panel settings on the list, and now we start to take a look at Gradient (gradient) fill, in Figure 11.
Figure 11 provides a Freehand9 two linear and radial gradient fill, and its panels from top to bottom are:
Color color code: by default, the color code for black, and the bottom panel of the default white color gradually with the decision to default black and white gradient, you can press the next button to open the color table to change the color, can also be used in other color, such as the mouse drag and drop to change the color.
Gradient mode switch button: This side-by-side with two buttons, press the button on a straight line gradient, below the corresponding panel to change the gradient of the control line: Taper (gradual rate - to provide uniform linear gradient and on the number of non-uniform gradient two), the perspective of the control button, point of display frames; Radial Gradient button pressed, the corresponding panel to change the radial gradient of the control panel: the focal point position control box.
Overprint (overprint settings): Fill in each panel there are options to fill the way, it said that when printing, if the images are superimposed with the image, each layer of the images were printed, that is superimposed layers; Otherwise, only print the top layer. Overprint settings can be the edge of the two-tier system to deal with images fine enough, but it may affect the color layers of the quality of superposition.
Take a look at the operation of the above, perhaps you have a problem: there are only two color screen standard, how to carry out red / yellow / green gradient it? The answer is simple: a good first edit a color, and then drag the color to indicate field gradient on the original color can add a color gradient on the contrary, the color bar from the gradient until the screen prompts the that from the blank to remove the color gradient.
We introduce a way to fill - Pattern (pattern) to fill, we first create an object, such as a circle, in the Inspectors panel> Fill to fill the sub-panel to select the type of Pattern, the content panel as follows:
Figure 12 we can see at this time provides a pictorial panel editing window and a preview window, in their Freehand9 below provides dozens of pre-set pattern. Default color pattern is black, you can define a color palette; Invert button will enable the exchange of black and white pattern.
Fill in several other ways to use more or less the same, it is worth noting, Textured (grain filling) and Custom (bitmap fill) print output if only to show the effect of the time, that is, we can not monitor effect, so that time can only be edited entirely by virtue of imagination.
Until now we have some of the basic functions of Freehand9 are introduced to everyone, but if you want to use arbitrary Freehand9, must be flexible in the application of these features combined, in the following section, I will be an example to further consolidate the earlier you learn.
