COLOUR PALETTE SETTINGS
By using the Colour Palette you can save your favourite or most commonly used colours throughout your site. This is highly recommended as it will be a huge time saver and create aesthetic consistency.
Navigate to the Colour Palette by selecting it from the left bar in your dashboard. The only part you will really need to concern yourself with is the colours under the “Active” tab. By default, there are a number of gray tones under there that are used on the default site. To add your own colours you can hit the + to the left of the “Active” tab.
The areas under the Visual Customizer that have a colour setting.
