Save custom colors

How can I save custom colors to the design studio? I don't want to enter the code each time I need to update an email background color or font color.

Re: Save custom colors

Not sure if it will completely help, but Jenna Molby figured out you can use a "MktoList" variable to list out the colors' HEX codes in an Email 2.0 template. See below:

Sample code:

Just in case it can be shown:

<meta class="mktoList" id="mkto-button-bg-color-1" mktomodulescope="false" mktoname="Button BG Color" values="#73c167,#80a1B6,#387c2b,#00a1df,#646569,#99999a" default="#73c167" />

Re: Save custom colors

You can use tokens to store this information (or, in Email Editor 2.0 at the individual email level, you can use a variable).

Re: Save custom colors

Thank you for your answer. When I'm editing within a text box for an email, I want to avoid working in the HTML as much as possible, so I don't see how tokens will work to change colors within the text box.

Is there another way to save custom colors without using tokens? I want to save at the system level, so I can easily select colors without having to type in the Hex Color Code each time.

Thanks,

Morgan

Re: Save custom colors

Within the WYSIWYG part of the Rich Text Editor, I don't believe there's a native way to limit the palette (there are very complex ways to do it that aren't worth indulging in for this one feature).

Both tokens and variables may be used to populate hex codes within CSS selectors and inline styles, in the HTML view of the Rich Text Editor, in emails, and in templates.

Re: Save custom colors

Yes, that's exactly what was meant by "... variables may be used to populate hex codes..."
