ShortPoint Color options
You can set the brand colors, named colors, custom colors, and HEX colors for the ShortPoint Design Elements.
Brand colors represent your company theme colors defined in the Theme Builder > Color Palette settings of the current Site Collection. You can easily distinguish these colors among others by their names: Primary, Secondary, Highlight, Alternate, etc.
These colors will be synced with the ones set in Theme Builder and updated along with it.
These colors suggest other popular named colors such as red, violet, orange, etc.
ShortPoint has a color picker that allows you to choose custom colors. Simply click the custom color you prefer and it will automatically reflect on your design.
It is also possible to set the colors using the HEX color code. Simply type the HEX code of the color you prefer in the designated field.
Note: HEX values always begin with # and specify values of red, blue, and green using hexadecimal numbers such as #1B9DD8.
