Colour Printin g made simpler

Posted by Ken Dowling 
Hi Finn

Your web info on this topic states "This works only when the colours in the map file are kept as standard colours."

Would you please be more explicit as to what 'standard' colours are? Presumably an IOF standard? Preferably with a link to a resource that specifies those standard colours.

Regards, Ken

Hi Ken

It is a very useful clarification that you ask for. What I mean is that the colours in the OCAD map colour table should not be modified to adapt to a certain printer.

Preferably the colours should be kept at the values specified by IOF in the International Specification for Orienteering Maps. The OCAD default colours deviate from the IOF standard, and if you prefer the OCAD colours this is also fine.

Best regards,
