Create Color Charts with the Color Chart Creator Extension

Create Color Charts with the Color Chart Creator Extension

By Roger Wambolt

The Color Chart Creator allows you to create grids of colors, known as color charts, from stock or custom color palettes. You can use color charts as a visual reference by displaying them on screen or printing them. If you are using CorelDRAW X8, you can access the Color Chart Creator as an extension, as shown in the video below. To access the Color Chart Creator in recent versions of CorelDRAW Graphics Suite, look under the Tools menu and select Scripts > Run Script. The Run Macro dialog box will open. From the Macros in dropdown list, select Color Chart Creator then click the Run button.

NOTE: Scripts/macros are not included in CorelDRAW Home & Student, CorelDRAW Standard, or CorelDRAW Essentials.

    I have a couple questions about this. 1st, where would I download this from. I tried searching the website but could not find it. 2nd, is this available in 2019. The macros menu is not under tools in the version. Thank you!

      Hello Jason,

      Which version of CorelDRAW do you have? Macros are considered a professional tool, so if you have the Home and Student edition they are not present.
