Custom Color Palettes

The ability to configure a custom color palette is available as a part of the WYSIWYG editor. This allows users to customize the 24 colors that display as options on the standard color palette. The following tools include the WYSIWYG editor, and therefore, include the option to create a custom color palette:

  • Deliver
  • Forms
  • Dashboard Queries
  • Portals
