There are a couple of different methods you can use to save your custom color:
You can use a macro – something like this:
Selection.Font.Color = 7814912
and assign it to a keyboard shortcut.
Also, if you want to format your text with a custom color, you can define a character style that includes or consists of only that color. Any text to which you apply that style will assume the custom color.
Follow the steps below to learn how to define your style:
- Click CTRL + ALT + Shift + S or click the small arrow in the bottom right corner of the Styles group on the Home tab, which will open the Styles pane.
- At the bottom of the pane, click the leftmost of the three similar buttons to open the New Style dialog box.
- In the dialog box, enter a name for your new style (perhaps the color name).
- Change the Style Type drop-down to Character.
- Pull down the color drop-down, select More Colors and define the RGB color.
- At the bottom of the New Style dialog box, click the New Documents based on this template button to add the style to the template rather than just to the currect document.
- To save yourself time and keystrokes, click the Format button at the bottom, and select Shortcut Key from the menu and define a key combination to apply the style to your selected text.
- Click OK.
