I have an organisational chart that is colour coded. Is there a way to ensure that new topics automatically adopt the original formatting?

If I add a topic to TO 4.1, the 4.2 Subtopic is created but without the coloured boxes etc.


Any suggestions welcome?

Create your Theme with the Theme editor in your Design ribbon.
There you can determine what the look and feel in each level can be.

Once you are in the theme-editor, also try the Advanced button for more details


If you just want all topics at the same level to have a consistent colour then editing the theme as Ary suggests is the best option.

If however you want a "rainbow" effect, ie, a different base colour for each branch, then things are a lot more complicated, and the best option is to use SmartRules. There is a discussion on how to do this here:
