Is there a way to format a column so that it retains that formatting?

I know how to format a column if it's being used in a visualBut let's say I want a column to always have a white background with white text wherever and whenever it is used. If I add it to a visual and then remove it and then re-add it, it loses the settings. Is there a way to change the formatting of a column itself, rather than just in each visual? I know this can be done in Tableau. Below is a gif of what I mean.

Hi @ThePiecesFit ,

 

The format is working on visual not on column.

You may check the following document about custom theme.

I do not think there is setting for background color for a measure
