Colour Management

Interactive Colour Recovery: If a colour palette required to display a drawing is not found because it was moved or deleted from its location, you will be asked if you wish to recover the missing colours into a new temporary palette. If this option is disabled, the colour recovery will happen automatically without your confirmation.

Colour Recovery: By default, if a colour palette required to display a drawing is missing because it has been moved or deleted, Harmony recovers the missing colours into a new temporary palette. If this option is disabled, Harmony will skip this step and display the zones painted with missing colours with the Replacement Colour, which is solid red by default.

Advanced Palette List: When enabled, palettes can be linked to specific elements instead of to the scene, and can be stored in an directory specific to an element, the scene, the scene's job or the scene's environment.

Replacement Colour: If certain colours are no longer available, Harmony will display the replacement colour in the zones painted with missing colours.
