Newbie question: Palette Themes - how do they work?


New to the product and the forums. Having worked my way through MacSparky's field guide I think I know my way around but have plenty more to learn yet!

One question I do have relates to Palette Themes. I have set new Palette Themes in Preferences, opting for very bright colours just to check I am not being too subtle about this.

My question : when I select a Palette using Show Palette of Macros action, why do they all still show in the default black and white? I expected these to show in their bright new colours. Am I missing the point of Palette Themes perhaps?

Thanks in advance

The Show Palette of Macros action uses conflict palettes, so just make sure the theme you set applies to this type here and it should work:

Thank you @gglick !

That works a treat now.

Out of interest, when are the other palette themes used ?

No problem. Glad to hear that's all the problem was. As for the other palettes, this page on the KM wiki should explain better than I can:
