You're using one of our templates and your proposal looks great, but the colours don't exactly match your brand. Don't worry. Proposify makes it easy for you to update the colours of your elements, so you can make any proposal yours.

When changing the colour of your text, the first step is to ask what you want to change: a specific piece of text, or an entire font style?

Changing the colour of specific text

If you're only looking to change a specific bit of text to a different colour (like making warning text red, for example), the top toolbar is your tool of choice.

First, highlight the text you would like to change. Once highlighted, click the "colour" tool from the top toolbar: 

This will open the colour tool, where you can select a colour from the colour picker on the left: 

Or, if you're looking to be more specific, you can use the right-hand form fields to enter the specific RGB properties, or the hex code:

If you'd like to save this colour for future use, you can also save this choice by clicking the "s" box next to the colour palette at the bottom left:

Once you've selected your colour, click the "ok" button and your text will change to your chosen colour, over-riding the default font colour set in Type Styles.

Changing the colour of a font style

If you're looking to change the colour of an entire body of text (heading 1/2/3, body, fine print, etc), you can do so by clicking the Type Styles button from the right-hand menu: 

This will pull up the Type Styles menu. From that menu, select the font style you would like to change using the dropdown at the top:

Once you've chosen the font style you'd like to change, click the colour fill box below that dropdown:

This will open the colour tool, where you can select a colour from the colour picker on the left: 

Or, if you're looking to be more specific, you can use the right-hand form fields to enter the specific RGB properties, or the hex code:

If you'd like to save this colour for future use, you can also save this choice by clicking the "s" box next to the colour palette in the bottom left:

Once you've selected your colour, click the "ok" button. Now, all the text set in this font style will change to your chosen colour.

PLEASE NOTE: To save our users the headache of changing the default text, then having to go back and re-format specific content, any text that has had its colour manually changed will not be updated to this new colour. If you would like that specific text to revert to the default, you can highlight it and select "clear formatting" from the top toolbar: 

Then, convert that text to the font style you'd like once again. This will remove all manual colour changes and revert to the default style.
