Working with CorelDRAW Color Palettes

Determine when you should set your settings to CMYK or RGB.

To open a different palette, or to set one as default, hold down your right mouse button on the target palette until a dialogue appears, then choose your preferences there. Note: if you choose CMYK in the primary color mode, and then change to RGB, your palettes will automatically update to RGB color model. Most often, CMYK is preferred to printed stuff, and RGB is best for things that are to be displayed on a monitor or digitally, such as a website or online in some fashion.
