    Custom Color

    In formatting tables, there are two shading colors I use a lot that are not "standard" Word colors. I can define them using More Colors in the Shading menu and Word remembers them for that session but forgets when I close it. Is there a way to have them stay defined across multiple sessions? I suspect the answer is no but I'm checking just-in-case.

    Yes, you can add your custom colours to the current theme. Go to Design > Colors > Customize Colors to define any colours you like. You can save the theme to apply to other documents as well.

    When I go to the Design tab, I do not see a Colors option.

    That looks like the Table Tools > Design tab

    Try the Design tab that sits between the Insert and Page Layout tabs

    You may notice that the built-in table styles all make use of the theme colours so that changing the theme will automatically change a bunch of built-in table styles that would be useful to you.
