The Color Picker

Color can be assigned to variables by entering a hexadecimal color code into the text field or use the Eyedropper button to select a color from the pallet tool. The palette tool can also be used to enter an RBG value by using the arrow button to switch from HEX to RBG.

When selecting a color, the picker will auto-generate a darker version of the variable that is previewed in the swatch. This darker version will be used for button rollovers and other interface elements.



Branding colors are the base colors for your LMS portal, affecting elements such as the background, header, footer, and menu top bar colors.
