If you want to change the color template in the project, simply go to the color template page and select the “Import Color template” option (shown an image below). When selecting this option, you can select a new (or the same) Color template. This newly selected one will overwrite the existing template for the project. The image below shows the import color template option. Use this option to change the color template of the project.



If you import a new color template, then you will lose all changes that were made in the project. If you created new color placeholders and new categories in this project, then these will be lost when the new template is imported. If any items are connected to the deleted color placeholders/categories, then these items will still have the same color but it will be a “fixed” color instead of a linked color.


The colors, tags, a number of colors, sort order, etc. can be updated in the project. All updates in the project are only done on a project level so that the templates in the library will not be affected. You can edit a color template in the color template page within the project. It is similar to editing in the color template library. 


The used color template can also be edited directly from the StoryTeller and the Form report by clicking the Colors option in the ribbon menu, as shown in the image below. The image below shows how to open the color template for editing in a StoryTeller and Form report



If any items are connected to a deleted color placeholder, then these items will still have the same color but it will be a “fixed” color instead of a linked color.

It is possible to export a color template in a project back to the color template library. This is useful if changes and updates have been made on a project level that you want to apply to the color template library. In the color template page, the “Export color template” button can be found at the top (see image below). When selecting this option, you can choose to replace the existing color template in the library or create a new one in the library.The image below shows the export button.
