Pen Panel


This panel serves via its Pen Icons for information about pens used during the drawing process (for more information see the Pen Identification and Pen Colors topics).


Through this panel you can also enable or disable individual pens, so you can exclude certain pens from drawing. Use right mouse button on the pen panel to show a popup menu which will help you to disable or enable pen groups.


For HP-GL/2 raster device with PC (Pen Color Instruction) support enabled there are displayed three columns of pen colors marked D, C and L. The D column shows the default colors (can be changed in the Pen Colors... dialog), the C column shows the current colors (as set by HP-GL/2 data, e.g. by PC instruction) and the L column shows the last used colors, i.e. colors lastly used for drawing.
