    increase the number of colours in the colour pallet

    I have MapPoint 2002 and I want to be able to use more colouors than is currently available in the default settings. Is there any way to have more colour options?

    Hey John

    See this article in MSDN Library. I've tried to get more colours and never been able to get more than the forty that are in the standard MP Colour Palette. MP seems to want to translate custom colours to the nearest match within these 40.

    At lease 40 is more than the 8 that are initially defined as VB constants. See this for details on those:
