So I keep mentioning that there are some changes coming to the new Palette Builder, and I can finally unveil what they’re going to be! Look for the changes to show up later this week!
First up, when you put your cursor over a palette swatch, the swatch itself and the circle that goes with that swatch gets a bit bigger. The opposite is true as well. This will hopefully make it easier to figure out which circle goes with which color. It’s much easier to see in action, but hopefully the screenshot gives you an idea.
Secondly, and the thing I’m most excited about is that your palettes can now be matched to either the closest hex value or Kona Cotton solid! No more trying to match your screen to the color card, we do it all for you.
Of course, a few caveats with fabric matching. First of all, your screen’s colors is different from everyone else’s screen’s colors, so you may need to make some adjustments when you see the Konas in person. Secondly, we do our best to match the closest Kona, but sometimes there just isn’t a close color, and so the color we find may look a little off. Pale yellow is closer to pale green than you’d think to a computer. 😉
We are doing final bug fixes, but I will be sure to let you all know when you have access to the new features!
