Modes

There are four different modes to the palette.

Fill

The default mode, where clicking on a paintable panel will fill it with the selected color in the palette.

Pickup

When this mode is active, clicking on a panel will select its color in the palette. For instance, if you have a color on the car that you want to paint another panel with, you would select the Pickup tool, click the panel, then switch over to Fill mode and click the panel that you want to paint.

Darken

With this mode active, clicking on a panel will paint it with the next darker color available in the palette. If there is no darker color, nothing will happen.

Brighten

With this mode active, clicking on a panel will paint it with the next brighter color available in the palette. If there is no brighter color, nothing will happen.

Keyboard shortcuts

When you are on the Cars or Helmets tab, you can use the + and - keys to select the next brighter (+) or next darker (-) color in the palette.
