View RGB color values & names
View PowerPoint RGB color values and color names easily on the PPT Productivity Color Palette Toolbar.
This feature was created for accessibility. People with color vision deficiency can find it hard to distinguish between some colors. Working with close color variants in a PowerPoint presentation also makes it challenging to distinguish between them.
When you mouseover any color on the Color toolbar, a tooltip displays the color name and RGB values.
If you need to find the HEX code in PowerPoint for a color on the Toolbar, simply right click the color and select edit. The Edit Color popup displays the HEX code along with the RGB details.
For colors in your presentations' theme, the RGB mouseover tip will also indicate which theme color setting the color has been set to (for example Theme Accent 3). This makes it easy to update your theme to adjust for which color is used in each accent.
Does your organization have custom color names that you'd like to display on mouseover? Contact us to discuss configuring the Color Toolbar to display your organizations color names.
