When you open Colour Palette Editor, it displays the main program window. This window is your work area. It contains the commands and tools used to create, edit and export your colour palettes.

The Colour Palette Editor workspace includes the following components:

Menu bar The menu bar displays commands for performing tasks. Menus are organised by topic. For example, the Palettes menu contains commands for working with colour palettes.

Toolbars The toolbars display buttons for common commands.

Status bar The Status bar displays text about the selected swatch as well as palette information.

Colour grid The colour grid displays the contents of the current palette, allowing swatches to be added, removed, duplicated and reordered.

Colour list The colour list is similar to the colour grid, but is displayed in list form and includes swatch names.

Colour editor The colour editor tab provides the ability to edit an individual swatch using RGB or HSL colour spaces as well as setting the swatch name.

Colour schemes The schemes tab provides the ability to create harmonious colour sets from a base colour.
