The color style customization is split in two categories:

These are the main colors of a theme.

  • background-color =the background panel of the tour window.
  • step text color =the color for the step text description
  • progression steps text color =the color for the progression text (e.g. 3/7) located at the top.

  • next step text color =the text color of the text ‘Next step’
  • next step background color =the background color for the ‘Next step’ button
  • stop tour text =the text color of the text ‘Stop tour’
  • stop tour background color =the background color for the ‘Stop tour’ button

There are 2 states you can customize, idle and hover. They can be switched from the Button State dropdown.

Buttons idle style

From this menu, you can choose how the buttons will look in their default state.

From this menu, you can choose how the buttons will look when users hover their cursor over them.

Note: editing the hover style is optional. If you don’t provide any custom colors, the system will automatically choose an appropriate hover color based on the colors you chose for the idle state.
