I downloaded the newest version of Blurb’s software and I noticed that the colour format for the fonts (and for the background) have changed.  Unless I don’t know how to properly navigate it, it is substantially worse from what it was.  The old one was good ("if not broken, don’t fix it"). 

What I am trying to find is the "old second and third tabs" withing the font and background colour schemes where I could see one colour’s shades spread wide and high in a square box – this way I could easily navigate in the shades of one colour and through vertical bar next to the square change it to a next hint/hue.  Now, I see only one square box with all possible colours squized in it and next to it is a thin bar, nothing more.  How can I get that "2nd and 3rd old colour tabs"?  I need these, otherwise I feel that Blurb has given me in its 1.9.7 version kindergarden crayons to colour with, taking away my oil paints.  (Note: I do not have the Adobe Photoshop).

Thank you in advance for your response.  Regards, Klare
