Expand Your Color Palette

Don't like the color palette provided by Notes? Long for an attractive
background color for your form? You're not alone.

Compose your color in an Illustration program and save as a small, solid
square, about 25x25 pixels. Then in the "Design - Form - Properties -
Background" import the graphic to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing
background color.

Use a similar technique for shaded backgrounds. Create a graphic about 20
pixels by 1000 pixels and create a box with a linear fill from your primary
color to the transparent color. When this background is imported in Notes,
your form will have an interesting transition in the background.
