updating MKTO color palette

is there a way to update color palettes in MKTO and replace them with your own brand colors when creating LP/Email templates?

Re: updating MKTO color palette

refer to the screenshot - how do you update those empty boxes at the bottom where it says "custom" and add your own brand colors?

I think I misunderstood your question in my previous response. Click on the word "Custom" to go to the palette, where you can select colors or enter hex codes. Once you choose "Apply" for the colors you want, they will auto-fill in those boxes for easy use in the asset.

Thanks Brooke - but will those colors work when I create a new email or is it only specific to that certain email? I'd like for it to update globally.

Re: updating MKTO color palette

We do this by creating a mktoVariable that presents a restricted palette of primary/secondary (and maybe tertiary) colors, then hiding the color picker because I want to ensure they can only choose brand colors:

This thread seems to be missing some parts.  Sanford Whiteman​, where are you creating mktoVariables and how are you hiding the color picker?  Is this within the template?

Re: updating MKTO color palette

It's within the template, but the color picker is in the editor pane (Variables section).

And I am eliding the quite special JS in the template that makes this work.

This blows my mind... I need to go down the rabbit hole & figure out how you do this.

Somewhere down there is a tiny door marked "parent" and bottle of JavaScript that says "RUN ME."   、., ⌒ 、., ⌒ 、., ⌒ 、., ⌒ 、., ⌒ 、., ⌒ /( =゚ェ゚=)ヽ

Sanford - where can I get more information on how to do that?
