I don't know how much YOUR time is worth per hour, but mine is worth far
more than the $10 it took to register Mo'Colors by David Livermore. For
that I got shapes, text objects, portals, etc in thousands of colors not
found in Filemaker, arranged in a way that makes picking pleasing
If you insist on doing it the hard way to save a whole $10, you can
create an object in Photoshop or Illustrator & paste it into a FM
layout. Option-click (Or control click in Windoze) to force FM to index
the color. You'll see the little fill box change to the non-native
color. Any object you draw after that will inherit that new color, until
you click or choose something else. The color won't appear in the
pulldown palettes, but you can always click on it again. Colors indexed
in this way should draw as quickly as native FM colors, and yes, 5.0
will make all this moot.
