Hi,
Sometimes, I get strange results with Mono Color Scheme (Divide Lines Generator) like these ones:
using green as the base color:

and red for this one:

Is it normal?
It seems that there's no problem with other Generators (Bricks, Color Bars…).

Hi,
This is normal.

The program uses the selected color as the basis to generate colors for all cells.
You can notice that the selected color appears at the bottom-left corner of the image. Its tone may be changed. Sometimes "at random". Only our programmers know how this works ;-)

The Density parameter affects colors. If density was set to 1, you will get a color very similar to the selected.
The greater Density was set, the more cells are generated, the more difference in color you see.

I've selected green as base color with density = 1 and got this:

Then changed Density to 13 and got this:

No green!

The Color Bars produces really different results using Mono as Color Scheme (the same for Brushes or Gathering for ex.).
Hopefully, the results are (imho) always nice and usable ;^)

I'm just surprised that Mono Color Scheme doesn't give some monochrome results using this particular Generator (Divide Lines) as it said in the IT Help:
"Mono - one base color with unlimited number of tints."

Right! Sometimes the generated image is of unpredictable color. This will be corrected in one of the next updates.
