In the GE editor, custom themes can be saved and loaded as described in 5.4 release notes. All works as advertised, except a way is needed to permanently store new colors into the default, system custom color palette. The following solution was discovered:

1) In GE Editor, change color palette as described in 5.4 release notes.
2) Save custom colors to a file, example: Mycolors.pwgc. Default location is $pwrp_pop.
3) Replace existing system custom color file with new palette file just created:

cp $pwrp_pop/Mycolors.pwgc /usr/pwr55/os_linux/hw_x86_64/exp/exe/pwr_colortheme100.pwgc

Now, your new custom palette appears when Custom color theme is selected in the normal way.
And, all of the other color themes work, too.



Files are numbered: pwr_colortheme0 through colortheme15. These correspond numerically to custom colors listed, where:

Standard = pwr_colortheme0.pwgc
Sand = pwr_colortheme1.pwgc
Maroon = pwr_colortheme2.pwgc
and so forth...
Custom = pwr_colortheme100.pwgc

Using the described substitution method, every enumerated color theme can be customized by the end user without compiling.

This scheme works well and is easy enough to do manually or even create simple scripts to make the process easier. But, is there a built-in method available that does the same thing?
