Garden with Insight v1.0 Help: How to change the soil patch mulch base color

A soil patch's mulch drawing color is the color used by Garden with Insight to draw mulch in the garden window and in the browser's pictures side. In the garden window, the mulch color appears on top of the patch when there about six inches of mulch on the soil patch. Less mulch produces a color intermediate between the mulch color and the first soil layer's soil color. In the browser you see mulch from the side, so the mulch color is used without change there.

To change a soil patch's mulch color, open the browser and select the soil patch in the object drop-down list box at the top of the browser (or magnify the soil patch using the growcorder or the magnifying glass). In the browser, click the pictures side gif/00000019.gif button to choose the browser's pictures side. On the browser pictures side, choose the Color display from the drop-down list box of soil display types.

The browser pictures side showing soil color

At the bottom of the pictures side, click on the colored square labeled Mulch color. In the color dialog that appears, choose a color then click OK. The change will affect the drawing of the mulch in the browser and in the garden window.

To undo your change, choose Undo from the Edit menu on the garden window.
