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
Standard Color Palette

24 Hex codes make up the default Slate color palette that displays when the font color or highlight color setting is clicked in the WYSIWYG editor. If 'More Options' is selected from either of these settings, a total of 162 colors are available, as well as the option of entering a custom Hex code:
