Setting Colors

Throughout Intellek Create, there are opportunities to set colors for instruction text, the instruction frame Header bar, and the instruction frame background. Additionally, colors can be used in the Style Manager to identify titles, terms, learner actions, etc. When available, click the eye-dropper icon next to the color to be set. The Color Picker dialog box for setting colors is the same, except for the Formatting toolbar. Colors can be set using either Hex codes or RGB coordinates.

TPArrowYou will need to identify the code/coordinates for the colors to be used outside of Intellek Create (e.g., Microsoft Word, Marketing Department, etc.)

1.Click the appropriate eye-dropper icon.


Under Hex, enter the 6-digit/character hex code for the appropriate color. Make sure to precede the code with the # symbol. Hex codes for:

oBlack = #000000

Under RGB, enter the appropriate coordinates for the desired color.

2.When finished, click the SAVE button.
