Color Chart dwgs

Does Autodesk have any drawing files and ctb plot files set up for color
charts.
Like a "pan tone" chart that would show what color 147 at 70% screening
would look like.

If there are 256 colors with 20 possible screen settings, that's 5120
potential colors to use as solid color fills for plan diagrams (for
instance). Without being able to choose appropriate colors from such a
chart, the task of choosing colors is sketchy (no pun intended).

I know that one ctb may only hold 1/20 of the possible colors, but maybe
Autodesk has a work around for this. A 30 x 42 sheet with 3/8" square
color blocks, slightly spaced apart could cover the gamet.

Thanks,

Greg

I just use the color wheel drawing. It might be on the CD or check the CAD
shareware sites, like CADalog.com. To see the different screenings I just
plot each wheel at different percentages. Mostly we just stick with 100%,
except for the 250s.

Enjoy,
Stef

Look for a file called CHROMA.DWG in your LT program folder (you can do a
search in Windows Explorer for it too), or on the LT CD.
