She’s Like A Rainbow! Automatically color your categories in MusicMaster Version 7 posted on July 15th, 2019
By Marianne Burkett
As someone with many years of MusicMaster under my belt, I’ve often found myself painstakingly going down a vast list of categories and one by one picking custom colors for each category. It got to the point where I would just begin the process at the far left or right of the color spectrum and go in either direction. I can always spot a database which has categories I’ve custom colored. What’s my trademark? All non-music is colored Gray.
In MusicMaster Pro Version 7 we have a new feature that will save you time coloring Categories. Go to Dataset/Library/Category Editor. You’ll see a brand-new button on the right called “Colors”.
Click on Colors and you’ll see Color Palette’s listed on the left. Select your preference and click OK.
As you can see here I did not apply this to the Non-Music categories as I prefer the use of vivid colors on music and something muted or grey in non-music to break things up. This helps me visually when editing logs or the clocks.
You may find a palette that works for you in “Colors” and this is a great optional feature for those of you in a pinch for time. It’s also great if you just want to change up the colors for something different. I’m more inclined to D-I-Y my colors as I have a degree in design from “Cracker Jack” himself. Whichever way you chose, you can make your categories as colorful as you’d like.
