color saturation

Is there a way to find the RGB color saturation for attached FDO objects when they are themed. I have looked under properties but there does not seem to be a way to find it. I would like to use the same color saturation for text in the drawing that has the attached shp files. Autocad map 2013.

 

Thanks

I found the solution by selecting the fill color in the style editor and going to more colors. The RGB saturation is already selected for the feature as the default. I did not see this earlier. It would be helpful to have this available in the properties of a checked out feature. Thanks John

If you save the themed layers to a .layer file you can open the .layer file with an xml reader or notepad and get the colors in hexadecimal notation which you then can find the RBG. http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_colors.asp

The quickest way to achieve that goal, in my opinion, is:

 

1] in Autocad view, click Print Screen

2] in the free Irfanview, press CTRL-V

3] now SHIFT-LEFT MOUSE to copy the hex RGB value to the clipboard (e.g. black = 000000, white FFFFFF, yellow FFFF00, and so on)
