David Hickey wonders, "...anyone have a suggestion on getting exactly the right
tone of red to appear in my Color drop-list in Frame's Paragraph designer?
The only red I've got is Bright Fire-engine Red."

Sure. With your Frame file open,
1. View > colour [sic] > definitions
2. make a beeline to Colour Libraries, leaving the other fields alone
3. select Pantone [one of 'em; I can't explain the wherefores of this part]
4. pick a colour from the bouquet that appears; the name appears in the top
box; "done"
5. back in the Colour Definitions menu, choose a custom name (e.g. "Shallow
Red") or don't; (play with the colour if you like); "add, done"
6. open the Par Designer menu & create a new format ("Shallow Red")
7. select the Default Font menu & select Shallow Red from the list under
8. apply at will

BTW, Shallow Red is a pretty smart software "bot" that will hold its own in
"conversation" while diplomatically steering you toward thinking about how
wonderful it would be to buy one of its kind from the bot-makers at

I have a question; I suspect it's pretty dumb & I should address it to Mr.
Red first, but... Why do techwhirlers often request a reply directly
"because I only get the digest"?
