 +==== Custom Palette Theme ====
 +
 +You can configure a custom palette theme color style with:
 +
 +<code bash>
 +defaults write com.stairways.keyboardmaestro.engine CustomPaletteTheme -string "​0,​90,​74,​ 110,90,74, 256,​90,​74"​
 +</​code>​
 +
 +The style includes 3 or 6 HSB colors (being background, text, highlighted letter, selected background, selected text, selected highlight letter) each specified as hue,​saturation,​brightness. ​ The background brightness is dropped by 33%, but if there are only three colors, then the selected background color is the background without the 33% drop.  You can select the Custom style in the Theme Editor.
 +
 +Alternatively (v9.0+), you can specify the theme using JSON and including all the details for the theme including optional gradients. ​ The format is:
 +
 +    { 
 +        "​IncludeTexture":<​BOOLEAN>,​
 +        "​TitleBackground":<​COLORorGRADIENT>,​
 +        "​TitleBorder":<​COLORorGRADIENT>,​
 +        "​BodyBackground":<​COLORorGRADIENT>,​
 +        "​BodyBackgroundSelected":<​COLORorGRADIENT>,​
 +        "​Frame":<​COLOR>,​
 +        "​TitleText":<​COLOR>,​
 +        "​Text":<​COLOR>,​
 +        "​TextHighlighted":<​COLOR>,​
 +        "​TextSelected":<​COLOR>,​
 +        "​TextSelectedHighlighted":<​COLOR>,​
 +    }
 +
 +^ Type ^ Value ^
 +| <​BOOLEAN>​ | “true” or “false” |
 +| <​COLOR>​ | an array of three numbers, being hue (0-360), saturation (0-100), and brightness (0-100) |
 +| <​COLORorGRADIENT>​ | either a <​COLOR>​ or a dictionary {"​c1":<​COLOR>,​ "​c2":<​COLOR>,​ "​angle":<​0-360>​} |
 +
 +IncludeTexture specifies whether Keyboard Maestro includes the subtle mottling texture on the main background.
 +
 +For example:
 +
 + defaults write com.stairways.keyboardmaestro.engine CustomPaletteTheme -string '​{ ​
 + "​IncludeTexture":​false,​
 + "​TitleBackground":​{"​c1"​ : [180,​30,​53],​ "​c2"​ : [180,​30,​40],​ "​angle":​270},​
 + "​TitleBorder":​[180,​30,​40],​
 + "​BodyBackground":​{"​c1"​ : [180,​30,​50],​ "​c2"​ : [180,​30,​38],​ "​angle":​270},​
 + "​BodyBackgroundSelected":​[180,​30,​60],​
 + "​Frame":​[180,​30,​40],​
 + "​TitleText":​[180,​40,​92],​
 + "​Text":​[180,​40,​92],​
 + "​TextHighlighted":​[180,​40,​70],​
 + "​TextSelected":​[180,​40,​98],​
 + "​TextSelectedHighlighted":​[180,​40,​75],​
 + }'
 +
 +NoteL the “-string” is important - otherwise the `defaults` command will interpret the JSON itself and that will not work.
