From the Colors and styles screen, you can change the colors and fonts of elements that appear throughout your site. To display the Colors and styles screen, click Colors and styles under the Website menu.

The Colors and styles screen lists the elements you can change along the left, and displays a preview of your changes on the right. Within the preview, you can click menu items and links to jump from page to page. Your changes won’t be applied to the actual site until you click on Save.

Settings for different elements are grouped into categories. The categories vary depending on the website theme you have chosen.

To expand the categories and view the elements within, click the plus sign beside the category name. For each element you can define a number of characteristics. If you select the Automatic option, the setting will be controlled by your website theme.

Some elements on your site can be controlled by more than one setting. For example, a heading formatted using the H4 style that's also a link can be controlled using either the General formatting > H4 setting or the General formatting > Link setting.

Some elements are general settings than be overridden or superseded by more specific elements. For example, the General formatting > Link setting can be overridden for breadcrumbs by the Breadcrumbs > Link setting.
