Colors, gradients, and textures

You can apply color to several object properties, including fills, borders and effects. In addition to solid colors, you can also apply several gradient types, textures, and noise as object fills.

Here is a preview of various fills:

Corel Vector supports RGB, HSB, and CMYK color models to represent colors. You can change the color mode as a general setting at the bottom of the Inspector panel. You can also set a general mode for the document and have different modes for different objects in the same document.


Note:  RGB and HSB are appropriate for onscreen designs while CMYK is better for print materials.
