Sentence 1: Note that the start of a spline is displayed in the white color whereas the end displayed in the blue color.

Sentence 2: Before you use this tool, the splines must be selected in Object Manager.


Sentence 1: Can I write "the" with colors: the white color, the blue color?
Sentence 2: "splines" or "the splines"?

Thanks.

Yes, using 'the' works well. However, I would use "with" rather than "in" for the colors.

1: Note that the start of a spline is displayed with the white color whereas the end displayed with the blue color.

To use "in", I would say, "1: Note that the start of a spline is displayed in white, whereas the end is displayed in blue."

Sentence 2: "splines" or "the splines"?
I can't now recall having seen a shaft with only one spline, so I would say "splines".


Thanks.
