Database colour

The Jim2 database can be set up to use any combination of four skin colours and five accent colours. Choose the database colour scheme from the two dropdown fields.



It is suggested to use one colour scheme for the main database and a different one for the training database in order to reduce the risk of making accidental experimental/training entries in the main database.
