SUMMARY

The following article provides a list of basic color names used in the Colors dialog box. (On the Format menu, click Fill Colors.) In Microsoft Publisher, the names are displayed in a ScreenTip for each color swatch.

NOTE: Some basic colors do not have friendly names (Red, Peach, Pumpkin, etc.) assigned to them. For those colors, the RGB value is displayed in the tip rather than the name.

Colors with assigned names are listed in the following table. Colors that are defined in terms of their RGB values are not listed here.
