Hi Dawid,

<Oops! After writing this (here I am top-responding to my own unsent  
message), I see that you are only using version 3.2.1! Still, this  
could add a reason to upgrade your software...>

You could find a few hints about using the Color Palette control in an  
article I wrote for Omnis Tech News back in 2004 titled "Colors in  
Omnis Studio Version 4". You can access the article at:

While I haven't covered *everything* in Omnis Studio, it is often  
worth a look at the list of articles on my web site  

and then click on the "Omnis Tech News articles" link on the left side.
