In the dialog, choose one copy with no offset or scaling (circled below). Click "Apply" when done. The duplicate rectangle will appear at the top of the stack so there won't be any change in the appearance on the screen.

7. We need to make another new color ink for this rectangle. In a manner similar to an earlier step, bring up the Color manager in the Inks palette and enter 65, 113, and 166 for the red, green and blue values as shown below. Then, make sure the top rectangle is still selected and depress the Fill icon (circled below) and click the "Apply" button. The top rectangle should look like the one below.
