  Taking Control of Inks in Canvas™ 6
Part One

In Deneba Canvas the Inks palette is the control center for the creation and management of inks. You can load, append, save and clear new sets of colors, gradients, textures, symbols and hatches as well as modify existing sets with new inks. In this tutorial we will create and add a custom color and a custom texture. This is but a small sampling of what you can do.

Creating a New Color Ink

1. Start by clicking the triangle on the left of side of the Inks palette to reveal the Color manager (below left). Using the RGB Bars, create a new color. You will see a sample of the color in the preview box (below right).

Assigning the Current Fill Ink

3. To assign a color as either the current stroke or fill ink, make sure no objects are selected and click either the stroke or fill ink icon (below left). Then click the desired ink tile (below right). In the example, the new color becomes the current fill ink.

ink at the bottom of the Toolbox
in the Inks palette. Note: the stroke
and fill ink icons in the Toolbox
function identically to the ones in
the Inks palette shown above. You
can set the current stroke or fill
ink using either one.
