You may come across a theme that you like but would prefer to tweak it a tad bit. In the Themes sidebar, click “Customize” at the top.

Click Customize

You can start by selecting a different style in the Font drop-down box. Pick from one of six font styles like Arial, Georgia, and Verdana.

Next, you can choose the theme colors. For each option, select a color from the palette or click “Custom” to enter a Hex code or use the shade slider for the exact color you want.

As you make changes, you can see them immediately in the theme preview at the top of the sidebar as well as on your current sheet.
