Options for configuring color grid tool tips can be found on the Appearance tab in the Options dialogue.

Specifying formats

Enter a formatting string into the Tool Tip Format field. Formats can include both plain text and tokens. Tokens will be automatically substituted with the appropriate attributes from the source color.

Tip

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

Examples

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.
