This dialog box gives you additional ways of interacting with colours across Microsoft Office applications.

More Colour Options Dialog Box
  • Import colours – QuickChart can read the colour scheme from the active PowerPoint presentation or Word document. This doesn’t affect the QuickChart template, so if you want to use them you should uncheck the “Auto-Colour” checkbox on the main Settings dialog. If the “Accent Colours Only” box is checked, only the six accent colours will be copied. These will then be the workbook colour palette.
  • Export Template Colours – Send the selected QuickChart colour palette to either PowerPoint, Word, or set the current workbook colours. If the “Accent Colours Only” box is checked, only the six accent colours will be copied. These will then be the workbook colour palette.
  • Office Theme Colours – You can create / read the standard Office Theme Colour file using the Save Theme Colours and Load Theme Colours buttons respectively. If you are creating your own QuickChart template, the “Make Template XML” button will convert the current workbook colours to the required XML code.
