Boardmaker Studio - change color of pictures

Hello!
Could anyone tell me if you can still change the COLOR of certain parts of the Boardmaker pictures as you could in the old versions (by using the paint bucket). I cannot find anywhere to do so.

  • Hi Elizabeth,

    Below are instructions for editing an image in BM Studio. Thanks!

    1. Select the symbol you want to change.
    2. Right-click on the selected symbol and select Edit in Image Editor. (For gadget symbols you'll need to choose Select Contents first, then right-click again and choose Edit in Image Editor.)
    3. The symbol will come up in Paint. You can then edit the symbol's colors using the fill tool, as well as make other changes using all the tools in Paint.
    4. When finished editing the symbol, select the drop down triangle at the top right and select Save As.
    5. Name the image and save it as a bitmap in C:\Program Files\Mayer-Johnson\Boardmaker Studio.
    6. Import the bitmap you just created as a symbol. Select File Menu > Setup and Options. The Settings menu will open.
    7. Select Symbols and Language from the menu panel.
    8. Open the Symbol Manager (and the Tasks panel).
    9. In the Symbol Manager viewport, select the folder for the symbol category that will contain the symbol.
    10. Select Import. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Mayer-Johnson\Boardmaker Studio. Select the bitmap image you created.
    11. Select the Open button. The file browser will close, and the picture will be added as a symbol to the selected category in your My Symbols library.
