Is there an easier way to change the color scheme of a theme other than the Pallette? No offense, but it is so hard to know what color I'm changing. I basically have to change it to RED and then see what changed, then go back and pick a color that I like. Is there any other way?
There no really easier way (not that i know of). I do find however if your wanting to style specific items a code inspector which all browsers have built in is the easiest way to know which elements are going to be customized that you actually want to customize since you can make live changes to check what a certain area will look like before you make the permanent change.
Style propeties and extra.css would be your best friend in that case as the color palette is more for global changes and what may look good in one area may not look so great in another.
