Not "around". You match within the same bar. From the manual:
The gray bar at the left has a flashing blue box and the blue bar has a
flashing gray box. Look through a blue filter at these two bars. As you
raise and lower the color control you will see the gray and blue change
relative to each other. You want to set the color control so gray and
blue match. Ideally when this happens you would see almost no
flashing on the center of the boxes while looking through the blue
color filter. Realistically you might always be able to see a little bit of
flashing, and if that's the case then just set the color control so that
gray and blue come as close as possible to matching.
The magenta and cyan bars also have flashing boxes with the other
color. Looking through the blue filter, you use these two bars to adjust
the tint or hue control. The idea is similar to setting the color control.
Ideally you would not want to see any flashing when looking through
the blue filter, but just use the tint control to minimize the flashing so
the center of the box appears close to the same shade.
