    Lightbulb Provide an SVG color palette in a next release

    I have been creating UI icons. I have to create a PDF version for MAC users and SVG for Windows users.
    I'd like to use SVG accepted colors only.
    The icons are used in toolbars in which each image in an icon is only 30 x 30 pixels.
    I have to assure there is enough contrast between shapes of similar colors once exported to SVG and would like to reduce the amount fiddling with colors.

    In the meantime, why not build up you own from these: https://www.december.com/html/spec/colorsvghex.html?

    " . . . why not build up you own from these: https://www.december.com/html/spec/colorsvghex.html?"

    Funny you should mention that. I found the same website yesterday when seaching for an RGB/SVG document.

    I just started the attached about a 1/2 hour before make this post.

    I am using the eyedropper to grab colors and name them and get their respective RGB values. I have discovered, however, that sometimes the eyedropper was producing a different HexCode; usually off by one integer or one alpha-character.

    I'm also also adding names and RGB values in a tabbed text frame which I can export to MSWord and then import into Excel; the Excel file can then be used to create an SVG palette for other apps.

    However this a really tedious process and prone to errors in my typing skills and crappy eye-sight.

    Once I finish, I'll share the Xara file here for anyone else interested .... until Xara adds SVG palette to their installer .exe.
