The SharePoint Color Palette and Themes Tool allows you to easily manage SharePoint themes on your site. To use the tool, simply open ShortPoint's modern Theme builder and navigate to General Settings > Color Palette > Color Theme Tool. In this article we will go through how to create, update and delete a SharePoint theme using the Themes tool.


Creating a theme


Default theme

By default when you publish color customization in Modern theme builder without creating a theme, a new theme called ShortPoint will be created and applied on your site. This ShortPoint theme will always contain your color customization until you create a new theme.
