This example shows the standard version of all component parts, since you have not yet adjusted any ressources. While there are many ressources you can adjust, when you launch the application for the first time, you will only see a restricted number of them in the treeview.
The reason for this is that by defaults a set of ressources named "Basic Theme" is used. When you want to create a design that is easy to use, you only need to adjust the "basic design". To create a more granular design, you can choose Extended Design or All Ressources from the drop-down list at the top of the treeview.
"and " All Ressources " and " Base Topic " side by side. "Every resource" contains literally hundred of modifiable ressources that allow you to design in great detail. "The " Theme Basics " contains only the 10-12 most important editing ressources. In order to begin with the creation of your first theme, we work on a specific topic in the Theme Creator and display it directly in the tools.
Open the "Basic Theme" in the navigational treeview (this is the default). Select the name of the background object. Note that a highlighted area is shown in the Prescan Area to show where the background asset is located. In this way, you learn where the resources are used and what they look like by defaults.
To open the menus, click the pencil symbol next to the resources and select Set to color. Note that the thumbnail is updated to the new colour as you work. Once you have selected the colour, click OK. Note: Look at the thumbnails to see how they are updated to show the new colour when they are used.
