If you have a specific theme in mind, you're able to create your own theme by clicking the '+' in the top-right corner of the menu that will launch a modal where you can create and customize your own theme. Read more about the configuration options available under each section.


In this tab, you are able to configure the color palette to be used throughout your project. Please note: Certain settings are automatically applied to certain components that are described in the table below.
