Text and objects with an applied scheme color will change automatically when you switch to a new color scheme or modify the current color scheme.), and then click Save.

All objects in your publication that were filled with scheme colors are now filled with the colors in your custom color scheme.

 Note    Your custom color scheme is now the default color scheme. The colors that you selected can now be used as the scheme colors when selecting colors throughout your publication. For instance when selecting the fill color for table cells, shapes, page backgrounds or font colors.
