List duplicate colors

Top  Previous  Next

This function searches the file content for duplicate colors.

It's usual in a given color collection to have individual tints very close to each other. This utility lists all colors, within a maximum Delta-E, that are critically close to each other.

Once this function is selected, the function manager windows appears on the screen to select the Delta-E limit of the function.

All colors within this Delta limit with another color in the file are listed.




Once the search is completed, the resulting report files path and name will be displayed.

The report file in the CSV format can be opened using all the usual office applications (text editors, spreadsheets, word processors, databases etc.).

This is an example of the CSV internal data structure:

Report files are saved by default in the "TWIN" folder located in the same directory where ColorD3 is installed. From this location files can be opened or moved to different disk areas.
