It appears that every time I switched colors while creating my chart the color was added to the color key, even if I used the color before! My chart only uses 4 colors and there are about 20 colors (duplicates) in my key. How can I delete them?

I suspect when you switched colors, you used the "Available Colors" panel (to the left, by default) rather than your floss palette (below) to switch the color. Normally, once you set your color, just click on the color you want from the defined colors in the palette at the bottom of the window.

However, normally, if you create a duplicate color, you get a warning pop-up message.

As for removing duplicates, just drag one color box OVER another and select "Replace". The symbol used will be the version that was dragged. For example, if "+" is dragged over "B", then all the stitches with the "B" will suddenly be changed to "+".

Good Luck,


Diane
