To create a color by duplicating an existing color:

1.
Choose Edit > Colors (Shift-F12), click a color, then click Duplicate.

Appending colors

  • To append colors from one document to another, click Append in the Colors dialog box or choose File > Append (Cmd-Option-A/Ctrl-Alt-A) (see pages 42–43).

  • To quick-and-dirty append, drag-copy an item to which the desired color has been applied from a library into a document window or from one document window to another. Here's the dirty part: If there is a color with a matching name in the target document, the color won't append.

  • If an EPS picture is imported into Quark XPress, any spot colors in the picture will append to the QuarkXPress Colors palette.


or

If an item is selected, Control-click/Right-click in the Colors palette and choose Duplicate [color name]. (If a table is selected, use the Content tool.)

2.
Change the color Name.

3.
Edit the color by adjusting any of the Cyan, Magenta, Yellow or Black percentages. You can also change the color Model.

4.
Click OK.

5.
Click Save, if necessary.

TIP

To compare the components of two colors, in the Colors dialog box, Cmd-click/Ctrl-click two color names, then Option-click/Alt-click Append (it will turn into a Compare button). Differences between the colors will be listed in boldface.
