Additional Color and Font Control

Color Picker

You can set the color and opacity of UI aspects (such as backgrounds, lines, and pre-defined shapes) and of Theme Editor UI preference settings (such as theme cluster outlines) via the Color Picker popup (for example, after clicking a color box parameter setting).


Color and Opacity Specification

  • Theme Editor supports color specification via:
    • Hex, RGB (Red Green Blue), or HSB (Hue Saturation Brightness) code entry
    • 1- or 2-dimensional color selection
  • Aspect transparency can range from invisible (0% opacity) to completely solid (100% opacity).

Swatch Selection

  • To keep a color as an easy-to-use swatch: 1) specify the color, and 2) click Add to swatches.
  • Swatches (or recent colors) are automatically saved for later use.
