Vendor Swatch Tables

Beyond the basic swatch tables included in Flexi, most versions of Flexi also include a very large list of vendor specific swatch tables often found in special books or physical swatch booklets they produce.

Every line of ink, film, or foil that a manufacturer makes is represented by a separate swatch table, which lists all of the colors available for that line.

  • To display the Open dialog box, do one of the following:
    • From the View menu, select Color, and then Open Table.
    • Right-click on any open swatch table and select Open Table.
  • In the Library Folder, search the vendor list for a desired color manufacturer. 
  • Select the desired color library. For more information on these color libraries, please refer to the manufacturer.

A new swatch table displays along the bottom of your screen.
