Is there a way to copy a preset color style and change a few colors?

Featured Lock Resolved Issue
I want change a few colors in one of the preset styles for Fixter. However, when i click on custom all the colors are different than one of the preset styles. can i copy a style and only change a color or two? this seems pretty illogical way of doing it..

Hi,
I cannot change default software code and behavior.
So all I can suggest is to use custom.css file (a new file) where you can define all colors, one by one, as you (or your customer) want.

you know the basics:

h1 {color: pink;}
h2 {color: red;}
etc.

Thanks Paul, however, that really isnt a solution.

If i select custom style to change the colours, then it doesnt actually work properly. The preset styles are so restrictive and the custom style is not mature enough. You should be able to select a preset style and then duplicate it and change colours in a style and resave it as a new style.

For example say i only want to change one thing in a preset style, there is no way to know what the colours of a preset style is to try and replicate them in a custom style.

In my opinion until the custom styles feature is 'fixed' then changing colours in a joomshaper template is too hard and not user friendly enough.

I fully understand your wish, but I can't change current code :(

so you have to use my first advice anyway.
Custom CSS can be added inside template settings or inside custom.css file.

in anycase, the custom styles doesn't work even if I choose to manually change colours. this needs to be fixed. If you try and do a custom style it doesn't update properly. even tried deleting cache etc and still doesn't work. the framework is hopeless with colours unless miraculously you want to use exactly the preset styles that joomshaper force upon you.

If I am using a framework, I would expect that colours can be changed through the framework interface, otherwise what is the point of the framework in my opinion. I don't want to be adding hundreds of lines of custom css.

hundreds of lines

In most cases, you need maybe 10.
