I got a great suggestion on your future versions of (Coffeecup Website Color Schemer), it will be great to have in my opinion, my suggestion is to easily make color palettes by having a random color button, that when you select it you will randomly get a color that you can use in your palette.

Color schemer is a great little program. To me, the one thing that would greatly ease and speed up web site development would be some kind of facility to import color schemes created in color schemer directly into the "custom color" pallet of other CC tools such as VSD, Photo Gallery, Form Builder, etc.

This would save one from having to reenter the RGB values of every custom color for your site into every program one is using to build the site.

Thoughts anyone? Thanks.

yeah great deal for those without Color Schemer which cost only $9 for both the program and comes with a color web handbook.

For those who already own Color Schemer, suck thumb and pay the same price if you really need just the color web handbook.

This is coffeecup latest marketing strategy.

A quick thought about Color Schemer ... I use it all the time to build sites. It would really be handy to have the file name or the Scheme name displayed somewhere on the screen. It would make it a lot easier to identify which color scheme goes with which site ....

I just purchased both the Color Schemer and the Web Color Handbook. The handbook lists the "Analogous Complementary" color combination, but I don't see it as a selection in the Color Schemer. Boo-hoo, that's the color combination I wanted to play with.

But, otherwise a WONDERFUL tool!!

Thanks.

You cannot miss it. It is right on the right hand size in the drop down list. ;)

I have a dual screen setup and I just discovered that the "Capture Color From Screen" tool can't capture a color from my Primary screen if the Color Schemer is on the Secondary screen. The workaround is to move the Color Schemer window to the Primary screen--then it can capture colors from either screen.

Don't know if that is something that can be fixed, but thought I'd mention it.

I see
* Analogous Colors
* Complimentary Colors
* Triadic Colors
* Split-Complementary Colors
* Triadic Colors

but no Analogous Complementary.

BUT, as I use the thing, it's become apparent that that is a very minor detail as I can use Split-Complementary Colors and just click "Add Colors to Scheme" and then click-and-drag the final color to the Scheme Colors box.

BUT, an annoying result of the Click-and-Drag is that it also selects that color as the keystone color on the color wheel. It would be better if it sensed the Drag action and canceled the "Selection" action.
