Since cartography is audience oriented, it would be incredibly considerate and handy if Symbology had a "Color Blind" friendly color scheme toggle.

This is an excellent idea. Right now we have to pop over to other tools to filter out color combos that are not accessible.

Hi @AndrewLintz 

Thank you for submitting this idea. Have you checked out the built-in ColorBrewer color schemes? See this post https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-pro-ideas/provide-color-blind-symbology-sets-in-arcmap/idc-p/96... 

Also of note is that ArcGIS Pro 3.0 will bring a Color Vision Simulator based on this idea: https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-pro-ideas/colorblind-mode-in-arcgis-for-cartographic-design/idi...

Here is a preview:

Do you think that will meet your needs or were you looking for something else specifically?

@SallyHoll1 for your opinion.

Thank you
