The Pick Color is a user-selected color.
What the Pick Color does
By default, Scan2CAD is “color blind” and sees raster images as non-white areas on a white background.
When a Pick Color is selected the raster and vector draw tools draw in the Pick Color and some functions become “color aware” and only work on Pick Colored parts of the image. For example:
Without a Pick Color selected, Scan2CAD sees all the non white areas of the image as one color and only removes speckles that are entirely surrounded by white space.
With a Pick Color selected, Scan2CAD only sees Pick Colored speckles and removes these regardless of the background color they are on.
Without a Pick Color selected, Scan2CAD sees all the non white areas of the image as one color and vectorizes them all to black.
With a Pick Color selected, Scan2CAD only sees and vectorizes Pick Colored parts of the raster image.
