Options for configuring how colors are copied to the Windows Clipboard can be found on the Copy tab in the Options dialogue.

Specifying formats

Enter available copy color formats into the Format field, one format per line. Formats can include both plain text and tokens. Tokens will be automatically substituted with the appropriate attributes from the selected color.

You can mix and match RGB, CYMK and HSL tokens - each token will be converted into the appropriate color space even if the source color belongs to a different space


The following examples show the type of output you can expect from different token combinations. The examples below are taken from the source RGB color FF8000.
