How to change color pallette:



Determines how an Form Builder color palette will be loaded on your system.  
Each time you load, open, or create a form, Form Builder loads the Form Builder color palette
into your current system color table. Because this system color table can handle only a limited
number of colors at once, Form Builder may not be able to accurately modify multiple forms
simultaneously if they use different color palettes.  

For this reason, use the Read Only - Shared option except when you are actively modifying the
Form Builder color palette.

Color Mode options:

Editable      
Select Editable mode only when you want to change the Form Builder color palette.
Once you have changed the color palette, return to Read Only - Shared mode.  In Editable mode,
each color has its own unique entry in the current system color table, and if there is no more
room in the table,  the color palette may refuse to load.

To change the Form Builder color palette:

1      Change Color Mode to Editable and save your options.

2      Restart Form Builder.

3      Use Edit, Colors to make changes to the color palette.

4      Use Edit, Export, Color Palette to save the Form Builder color palette to a file.

5      Change your options to use the new color file.

6      Change Color Mode back to Read Only - Shared and save your options.

7      Restart Form Builder.

Read Only-Shared      In Read Only - Shared mode, Form Builder maps duplicate colors to
the same entry in the current system color table before appending new entries from your Form
Builder color palette.  Read Only - Shared will help you avoid the color flicker that can
result when you switch between Form Builder color palettes and is the recommended setting for
Color Mode unless you are modifying the palette.


Read Only-Private      This option is provided for consistency with Graphics Builder,
and is not relevant for Form Builder.  In Form Builder, it maps to Read Only - Shared.

Default Read Only - Shared
