Error importing custom theme

I created a custom theme based on one I downloaded from Power BI. All I changed were the color codes and the name. When I go to import, I get "Error importing theme file." Anyone know what's causing that error? Here is my .json: 

 

{
"name":"MyTheme",
"dataColors":["#FFD0000", "#1A1446", "#78E1E", "#037B86", "#343741", "#99E5EA", "#FFE280", "#E6E6E6", "#5BD0B0", "#B2E4FE", "#ECABCC", "#057BE0"],
"background":"#FFFFFF",
"foreground":"#074650",
"tableAccent":"#fe6bd6"
}

Thanks in advance for any help!

Re: Error importing custom theme

Hey,

 

please check the hexcodes for the colors

"#FFD0000" (1st color) and "#78E1E" (3rd color)

The color codes have to be valid hexcodes 6signs (characters and numbers) plus the # sign

Re: Error importing custom theme

Hi @efliberty,

 

I also agree with @TomMartens, and by my tests, the error is caused by the two color codes. Please check the first and the third color codes("#FFD0000","#78E1E") and modify it to be the correct format.

 

If you have solved the problem, please always accept the replies making sense as solution to your question so that people who may have the same question can get the solution directly.

 

If you still need help, please feel free to ask.

Re: Error importing custom theme

Hi, I'm not sure if you had your question answered on a separate thread but I think you made the same mistake I did. Your color "#E0E4E" is missing a digit.
