Color Presets

    Has anyone spent hours tweaking through various color preset options? I started doing it, and created a few as I went. Has anyone else done so…and feel generous enough to share theirs?

    Reply to my post and I’ll send you what I have.

    Thanks!

    P.S. I’m looking for a Red Theme.

    I am just setting up now and trying to figure out where to find presets to download as I am terrible with colors. I’d love to see new options.

    Good resources to help determine appropriate color matches, etc. I’m looking specifically for the presets that someone has already created in Graphene and exported. The export function from Graphene simply creates a TXT file with the info, then you can turn around and import them.

    Thanks,

    Hey, Bob, I just found out that Graphene now has the much awaited ability to save colour combinations as presets.

    Do you know where the color export preset file gets saved?

    After saving it with a name, I wasn’t given the option of where on my PC to save it.

    PS Got a nice pink-&-purple scheme on BuyWomensLingerie.net you can tweak, when I can find the preset file!

    Duh, forget that post of mine. ;(

    I just spotted the pale grey Export Presets button to the right of the main button. Got it now!

    PS Many thanks for that function, Syahir. 😀

    Yep…every time I find a good color scheme, I save it as a preset in WordPress, “and” export it as an individual preset someone to my computer. It’s simply a TXT file, so that’s easy enough. I’m just waiting to find someone who’s spent time creating their own presets (as TXT files) and feels gracious enough to share.

    The one issue I’ve discovered is that the presets that already exist in Graphene do “not” modify the main menu bars, etc. When you save your own, those changes are saved, but the native presets don’t touch those for some reason.

    Ouch…here’s what I discovered.

    If you take an existing preset and modify various elements/color, it only saves the things you change. If you want the default content color saved into your preset, you have to manually choose that color and “set it” before you save it. If not, when you load a preset it only loads elements that you’ve changed before you originally saved it.

    That is frustrating to me 🙁

    This was because those preset were added before the colour options for the menu bars were available. But we’ll fix this in the next update.

    This shouldn’t be the case. Whenever a colour preset is saved, the entire list of colours is included, regardless of whether they are modified or not.
