Autodesk AutoCAD Colour Books 2004 - 2009, AutoCAD LT 2009

Resene Colour Books are compatible with Autodesk AutoCAD 2004 – 2009 (including AutoCAD based products) and AutoCAD 2009 LT and Revit. These allow you to specify Resene colours anywhere AutoCAD allows colour selection (Layers, Objects, Hatch fills etc).

NOTE: If you send a dwg file to AutoCAD users without Resene Books installed colours, if edited, will convert to RGB True colour values. There is no change in appearance or output except the Colour Name is replaced with RGB Values in all listings and dialog boxes.

Colour books are available for individual Resene colour ranges. Save the acb files into the colour book folder specified in AutoCAD Profile/Files Tab "Colour Book Locations" or add your own colour book folder path to this profile setting. Resene colour books will then be available in any "Select Color dialog" on the "Color Book tab".

Using a Resene colour book with AutoCAD fields enables you to have legends/notes that update as the object colours are changed.

Some computer setups may convert these files to xml when saved to your computer. If this happens change the .xml extension to .acb and you will then find the colour books work as they should in AutoCAD.
