Theme colors help to ensure that different elements in the document coordinate with each other and contribute to a unified look for your document. Theme colors use different colors for elements in a document, such as fonts, color fills in tables, charts, shapes, or lines. Themes work more effectively when text is formatted by applying styles. For more information about how to apply a style, see Apply, change, create, or delete a style.
