You can start by choosing a different style in the Font drop-down box. Choose from six font styles, such as Arial, Georgia and Verdana.

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

You can choose colors for the text, graph background and hyperlinks. This gives you a great way to personalize the sheet for your business or organization.

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

When done, click "Done" at the top of the sidebar. You will also notice that the theme name changes to Custom and this option appears at the top of the list.
