Create a Custom Color Scheme
Create a Custom
Color Scheme
You can gain more control over the look of
your workbooks by creating your own custom
color scheme.
Each Excel theme comes with more than 20
built-in color schemes that make it easy to
apply colors to your worksheets. However, if
no scheme offers the exact colors you want,
you can create your own scheme. Each scheme
consists of twelve color elements, including the
following:
Text/Background 1 - Dark: The dark text
color that Excel applies when you choose a
light background color.
Text/Background 2 - Light: The light text
color that Excel applies when you choose a
dark background color.
Text/Background 3 - Dark: The dark
background color that Excel applies when you
choose a light text color.
Text/Background 4 - Light: The light
background color that Excel applies when you
choose a dark text color.
There are also six elements — named Accent 1
through Accent 6 — that Excel uses as colors
for chart data markers, as well as two colors for
hyperlinks (followed and unfollowed).
