Applying workbook themes and
When you apply formatting to a workbook element, Excel displays colors that are
available within the active theme. For example, selecting a worksheet cell and then clicking the
Font Color button’s arrow displays a menu containing two palettes of colors you can use.
The theme colors appear in the Theme Colors palette, the standard colors appear in the
Standard Colors palette, and the More Colors link, which displays the Colors dialog box,
appears at the bottom of the menu. If you format workbook elements by using colors
from the Theme Colors palette, applying a different theme changes that object’s colors.
