  • If your app uses a OutSystems UI Theme as a Base Theme, you can use Theme Editor to customize the overall style of your app and preview your customized app without leaving Service Studio.

    To open Theme Editor, open a Screen and click the Theme Editor... icon in the workspace toolbar.

    Open Theme Editor

    Customize default colors of Screens and UI elements

    Select one of the 18 default color palettes or use a custom palette based on the main colors from an image, like the logo of your company.

    Once you select a color palette, Theme Editor sets a Primary color, a Header color, and a Background color. You can change each of these default colors by choosing one of the other three suggested colors or by defining a custom color.
