How to Create Custom Themes and Style Sets
In addition to using existing themes and style sets, you can make your own. You can create new themes and style sets from scratch or tweak existing ones. By using custom styles and themes, you can easily control exactly how your document looks.
You can create your own color set to give your document a fresh, unique look or comply with your organization’s brand standards.
This menu shows previews of all the existing color sets, but you can also create your own.
In this dialog box, you can set the text, background, and accent colors.
You can switch the colors with another from the current theme or a variant of one of those colors.
If you’d prefer to create a new color set entirely, rather than shuffling existing theme colors around, you can.
Here, you can choose a color from the color picker or enter the exact color value in the text fields.
The color is changed. Continue changing the other colors in the set the same way.
The new color set is saved and automatically applied.
You can also create custom font sets to use in custom themes.
This menu lists all the font sets available, but you can also create your own.
In this dialog box, you can select new Heading and Body fonts. A preview, showing the two current fonts, also appears.
Once you’ve selected two fonts that look good in the preview, you’re ready to save the font set.
The font set is saved and automatically applied.
When you have a color set and font set combination that you like, you can save it as a theme to use in other documents.
Your theme is saved and will be found in a special Custom group in the Themes menu.
Custom themes you’ve saved will be available for use in all your documents. You can even share the theme file with others so they can also use your new theme.
If you’ve customized the basic styles in a document, you can create a custom style set.
You can select an existing style set here or save your custom style set currently in use.
The style set is saved. Just like with themes, a new Custom group will appear in the Styles gallery, above the built-in style sets.
