What is Convert to Palette?
Convert to Palette is a macro that can convert the Outline colors and Fill colors (Uniform Fill and Fountain Fill) of selected objects to a specified palette.
The macro also addresses content inside Groups and inside PowerClips.
See Convert to Palette in use:
Using the macro.
The palette to which colors are converted is determined by the Palette combobox.
To add a palette to the list for the combobox:
To convert colors, select one or more objects, then click the Convert Selection to Palette button.
If Ignore White is checked, then colors that CorelDRAW considers to be white are not converted to the selected palette.
If Preserve Existing Spot Colors is checked, then existing spot colors in the selection are not converted to the selected palette.
Using the Combobox.
Right-clicking on a combobox brings up a menu of options for managing it.
Convert to Palette subs in the Macro Manager.
Convert_to_Palette was put together in a CorelDRAW X7 environment, and should work in versions X7-2020.
OK, where's the macro?
JQ_Convert_to_Palette_Current.zip (most recently updated 2021-07-17).
That includes the .GMS file and a simple icon that can be used on a CorelDRAW Toolbar.
Please note that, starting with the version released on 2020-05-03, this macro uses a different scheme for storing combobox value lists and some preferences in the Registry. If you have been using an older version of this macro, those "old" value lists and preferences will not be there when you use the newer version. If you want to "clean out" those old entries that are not used by the newer version of the macro, the best way to do so is to run the Remove_Convert_to_Palette_Registry_Entries sub, which will set the macro back to its default values.
