    Re: Change Default Colors (2007)

    I did some more digging and was able to answer my own question. Using and changing colors with Excel 2007 seems to be one of the bigger improvements, not just in Excel, but in all of Office 2007. On the Page Layout portion of the ribbon, you can set up any number of themes. You can customize each theme separately. You can set the colors, fonts and effects for each theme. I'm not sure if I'll use custom effects very often, but it will be nice to have an easy way to change color and fonts.

    It's too bad that when I searched help for "change default color" or variations of that search, here's what came up:

    Change the default font in Excel

    Set new formatting defaults for a shape or text box

    Vary colors in the same data series

    Change the color of gridlines in a worksheet

    Demo: Apply your brand to Office documents with themes

    Change the default file format for saving workbooks

    Set the default printer
