7.1 Site Styles/Themes Naming & Sync idea.

Recommended Posts

So I had an idea and was wondering if it would make sense. For the 7.1 themes I think it would be great if we had the following features/options:

  1. Instead of having Built in Names like Lightest and Darkest we can Custom name them depending on our intended use. So instead of Lightest 1 I might rename it "Main" and the Lightest 2 might be "Background Blue"
  2. Instead of having 10 Themes to start which could be confusing to the end client after a site handoff and end up having incorrect styles applied we are able to add "Themes" as needed.
  3. Have the Themes have the ability to be linked or synced to each other. So if I used Lightest 1 as my "Main Theme" but I used Lightest 2 to Make Some text and buttons a different color all the other elements stay linked to the the Main theme so if I change something on Lightest 1 it also changes on Lightest 2. There would be a clear indication if the item was synced to another theme or was custom to that theme and could easily be reset. Another way to do it would be to Have an option when Selecting the color is to simply add a Same as and then you select the theme and if one changes they all change. So for example when you select the color it would say, Pallet | Custom | Select Theme.

Being able to rename color themes with descriptive title would be very helpful - as it is I have to note what schemes are being used where so I don't inadvertently change style.
