So, in CorelDraw there's a number of different color palettes; RGB, CMYK, Pantone..............but does anyone use the HKS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HKS_(colour_system)) palette?

And there's another one called "Uniform Colors" (which are all RGB), what's that all about?

I only use Pantone solid coated and Roland Color Library.

I likely will too, but I'd like to have an understanding of these others.

Do you understand how wind is turned into electricity so when you flip a switch a light goes on ??

The grid work, the turbines the spinning and turning of all this stuff.... it would be neat to know, but with so much on your plate right now.... why make more worries than you need to cope with ??

I'm not making more worries, I'm just trying to understand in general terms what those two palettes are about.

Here's a different one:

I was of the understanding that RGB and CMYK colours will always print differently, so just for a reference, I created a grid of the std palettes in CorelDraw, and applied the corresponding colours from the palette. One got all CMYK colors, and the other all RGB.

First I printed them off on my little Canon desktop printer, and they were identical. I thought that they would certainly be different on the Roland, but they are identical on that too! What gives?
