  Use of Color - 2D Display Modes

In NMR, like in typography or geography, color can enhance readability, if used wisely.

You change the colors with the command ‘Format/Levels & Colors’. The four numerical values you see in the dialog affect how the 2D spectrum is drawn. The names you see attached to these parameters come from the contour plot terminology, yet the parameters are also connected to how other display modes are implemented. Each parameter is restricted into its own range of allowed values.

The first color of a spectrum can also be changed from inside the ‘Overlay manager’ window, when another document is in the foreground. The same window also contains a special button to change the color to a multiple selection of spectra.

You can create a color gradient through all open windows with the command ‘color’ (only available in the Console).
