Can we load our branding color to rich text editor color pallet?

We need to add our custom colors in this pallet for frequent use. So is it possible to load our custom colors?

not really.... although @SanfordWhiteman has teased a very complex scripted way to accomplish something similar a while back, but I have yet to see any reference to a way to do this successfully. More than happy to be proven wrong, but ....

 

A possible work-around I've had, in the Email editor, is to create variables for the color and then use a picklist instead of a color picker; it wouldn't be as nice as "Company Blue" it would likely have to be a short list of hex codes in order to have it flow through properly....

Right, there's a tricky way to create a palette of brand colors (yes, with actual preview color "chips") in the main Guided Landing Page and Email Editor 2.0 editors. But that's only in the Variables tab, not in the WYSIWYG Editor. Never been able to hack it together in WYSIWYG in a reusable way.

I can send you the code! It's just a lot to explain and you know I like to divulge the innards of things a bit.

Ramesh,

this post

https://nation.marketo.com/t5/Product-Discussions/Drop-down-titles-within-email-template-variables/t...

contains a sort of solution to what you are looking for.  

I use this quite extensively now either as local variables or global depending on the context.

Cheers

Jo
