Visualization Colours window

When you use colours to visualize gender, meal, group and custom fields in the floor_plan_16Floor Plan and table_circular_16Table Plan panes, PerfectTablePlan selects the colours automatically using 12 default colours. The visualization_colours_16Visualization colours window allows you to change these colours. E.g. you can change the colour used to display a vegetarian meal to green.

To display this window in the floor_plan_16Floor Plan or table_circular_16Table Plan pane:

1.Click the colours_and_fonts_16 button at the top of the pane.

2.Click the Visualization... button in the colours_and_fonts_16Fonts and Colours window.

To display this window in the stationery_16Stationery pane:

3.Click on a colour code spot in the design_16Design tab.

4.Click the Colours... button that appears at the bottom of the pane.

Set Field to the name of the field whose colours you wish to change.

Set Colours per value depending on the number of colours you wish to use to represent a value. 2 colour schemes can be useful if you are trying to distinguish between lots of different values. E.g. if you have 100 groups, it is hard to choose 100 visually distinct colours. 2 colour schemes are only available for Groups and custom fields of type Selection.

Click on a colour button to edit the colour.

Click Set colours automatically to automatically set the colours. This is particularly useful if you change from a 1 colour scheme to a 2 colour scheme.

Click OK to accept the changes and close the window. Click Apply to apply the changes without closing the window. Click Cancel to discard the changes and close the window.

Note Changes to the colours only affect the current plan. If you wish to use these colours in other plans you will need to create a re-usable template plan.
