Thanks, seen the many colour sets to choose from now and can see how you
create your own colour.

Do you know what the red outlined triangle means that appears next to some
colour set in properties. I first thought it was only next to RGB and not
CMYK colours. But then realised this wasn't the case. Are the colours with
the triangle alert/warning not to be used for some reason based on the
document settings of the document I'm working on? Are the incompatible in
some way?
