How to Use Custom Colour Palettes

Custom Colour Palettes is a new feature that allows you to build and save colour combinations to use on individual Blocks rather than editing the colour scheme of your website as a whole.

This feature can help you to customise the aesthetics of your site in a whole new way. If you need a particular Block to stand out against your traditional colour schemes, you can apply a Custom Colour Palette to make it pop out from the page. 

One particular use for this could be to highlight a special offer or other important call-to-action on your page. By adding a Custom Colour Palette to this section of your site, it will contrast against the rest of your page and draw your site visitors towards taking action.

Custom Colour Palettes offer a new dimension of creative freedom to your website. There are a number of different scenarios that this feature will come in handy for; whether it’s to highlight important information or to compliment your existing design.
