When you use the ‘Text’ tool to type words into Silhouette Studio, the words look like this:There is no fill color and the line color is red. Here’s how to change that (scroll down to change the line color):


STEP ONE: Select the text box containing the words you want to fill with color. I clicked once on my ‘Howdy, folks!’ to select it like this:STEP TWO:
In Silhouette Studio V3:

Click the ‘Open the Fill Color Window’ icon (A). A window with a color palette will open on the right. Click on the color you want to fill your letters. I chose black (B).

Adds automated cutting for everything you print. Option for IMAGEPRINT turns any printer and Graphtec cutter into your own personal finishing lab. Print on any paper, any size, any edge style, any corner, any border, any background, then cut it into ANY shape. No extra software to buy and learn. Hi Lucky – Yes, VClip has better code to deal with HiDPI screens and display scaling, I’m going to bring that to GifCam, but there is no bad news:) because VClip is different tool than GifCam, VClip exporting to gif is an extra feature the main idea of VClip is to record short video with speaker sound, but GifCam is all about gif, so each tool has different use cases. Everything worked properly, the system was fast, stable, and often offered multiple approaches to accomplishing tasks. Mabox inherits Arch Linux's large repositories of software and the cutting-edge packages which make its grandparent famous. The lightweight Openbox window manager is flexible and fast. Color Grading Part 1 – The Basics. With VideoStudio Ultimate, you’ve got access to pro level color grading tools. Use the Auto Tone Adjustment, make manual adjustments to hue and exposure, control white balance and temperature on video clips, add LUT profiles or make more creative adjustments to radically change your footage – or even dive deeper with tone curves and HSL tuning. Just release the cursor when you find a color you like. This image shows V3 of the software, but the Advanced Options and cursor slide are right under the palette in V4, and work the same way. The slider on the right (F) controls the tint, so that gives you even more color options by increasing or decreasing how “greyed” the color is.


And that’s it! The letters will fill with whatever color you choose. If you change your mind and want these letters a different color…say, green…simply select the text box again and click on the green box you want, and you’ll have green letters.

In Silhouette Studio V4:
Click the ‘Open the Fill Panel’ icon (AA). A panel with a color palette will open in the upper right. Click on the color you want to fill your letters. I chose black.(BB)


And that’s it! The letters will fill with whatever color you choose. If you change your mind and want these letters a different color…say, green…simply select the text box again and click on the green box you want, and you’ll have green letters.

Oh, yes… and in V4 there’s also a super-convenient, quick button way to open the fill palette. In the upper left corner of the screen, click on Y and choose your color.


How to select “none” as the fill color…

If your letters are already filled with color and you want to set the fill color to none, instead of choosing a color, click on the large square with the cross-hatching in it (C in V3), (CC in V4).

Other color options…

If you can’t find the color you want in the color palette, click on ‘Advanced Options’ (D) and another color range will pop up below the palette. Click anywhere in the color range to choose a color. You can also drag the cursor (E) around the color range to see the possibilities in real time. Just release the cursor when you find a color you like. This image shows V3 of the software, but the Advanced Options and cursor slide are right under the palette in V4, and work the same way.

The slider on the right (F) controls the tint, so that gives you even more color options by increasing or decreasing how “greyed” the color is. The ‘Transparency’ slider at the bottom (G) allows you to select a solid color or vary how “see-through” or transparent the color appears. In V4, the ‘Transparency’ slider is directly under the color palette.

How to match the fill color to the color of another object…

If you choose a color from the palette (as in STEP TWO) for one object, and then you have a second object you want to have the exact same color, matching is easy. Simply choose the same color box from the palette that you chose for the first object. But if you chose a color from the color range below the palette, or you played with the tint (F) and transparency (G) sliders to get just the right color for the first object, it can be a challenge to match that color in other objects. Silhouette Studio has the handiest tool for this. See the eyedropper in the color palette (Q)? Ooo, baby, do I like this tool. :^) It allows you to fill an object with color that is the exact same as another object. Here’s how it works.

Let’s say you wanted ‘Howdy, folks!’ to be the same color as ‘Welcome’. Select the text box that has the text you want to change color (in my case, ‘Howdy, folks!’), click on the eyedropper (Q) and then move the eyedropper cursor around. Sorry, the eyedropper cursor doesn’t show in this image…screenshots don’t capture the cursor, but you’ll see it’s there, just to the left of the color box (R).

As you move your cursor around, the color box (R) next to the eyedropper cursor changes color depending on what the eyedropper cursor is pointing to. To get “Howdy. folks!” to be blue like “Welcome”, move the cursor over “Welcome” until the color box (R) changes to blue, then click. Voila! ‘Howdy, folks!’ is the same baby blue as ‘Welcome’.


What about the number boxes?

Don’t worry about them. The numbers will change automatically as you choose different colors. But if you know the HSL or RGB combination or the # of a specific color you want to use, you can type it into the number boxes to get that exact color. For example, the blue I used in the subheadings above is #10a4c9, so when I want the text to be that exact blue, I plunk #10a4c9 into the # box to get it.

Select the text you want to have a different line color.

In Silhouette Studio V3, click the ‘Open the Line Color Window’ icon (H). In V4, click the ‘Open the Line Style Panel’ icon (T), and select the Line Color icon(V)

Version 3 ↓↓↓

Version 4 ↓↓↓

For both V3 and V4, follow the directions for changing the fill color as above. The process is exactly the same—same palette, same advanced settings, same tint slider, same transparency slider, eyedropper matching tool…everything. The only difference is you’re making these choices in the Line Color Window instead of the Fill Color Window.

So for my original ‘Howdy, folks!’, I changed the line color from red to “none” by selecting the large cross-hatch box (K).


And in Version 4 there’s a super-convenient quick-button method to get to the line color palette. In the upper left corner of the screen, click on Z and choose your color.

And there you have it… the A to Z of fill color and line color. If I’ve missed anything or you have a question about any of this, leave me a comment and I’ll answer ASAP.

Cheers,
