Change Theme Color in Flowchart and Business Diagram

Theme Colors help you create diagrams with a consistent appearance and controls the colors of the shapes in your flowchart and business diagram.

Each shape element receives a different, but coordinated color treatment. With the new Theme feature, you can format the colors and effects in an entire diagram with a single click.

Edraw provides several predefined document theme colors, but you can also create your own by customizing an existing document theme color, and then saving it as a custom document theme color.
