Themes allow you to style IndustraForm templates with text color, background color, and styled headings. The Blue base theme is automatically applied to all IndustraForm templates.

Themes are separate files that are applied to all IndustraForm templates in the same scope or across all scopes. The scope selected when a theme is configured, and the position of the theme in the navigation pane determine which IndustraForm templates take on the theme:

  • A theme configured above the area tree in the navigation pane when the Everything scope is selected, is applied to all IndustraForm templates in all area nodes for all scopes.

    Theme configured above the area tree with the Everything scope selected

  • A theme configured above the area tree in the navigation pane when a specific application scope is selected, is applied to all IndustraForm templates in all area nodes for the specific application scope selected.

    Theme configured above the area tree with the Shift Handover scope selected

In the above example, the Theme is applied to all shift report templates in all area nodes. This is useful when you want shift reports to be clearly distinct from the other IndustraForms.

  • A theme configured at an area node in the navigation pane when the Everything scope is selected, is applied to all IndustraForms in that area, and its child areas, for all scopes.

    Theme configured at an area node with the Everything scope selected

In the above example, the Theme is applied to all IndustraForm templates in the Plant section and its child areas (Distillation area, Crude Oil Distillation Unit, and Vacuum Distillation Unit) for all scopes. This Theme overrides the theme configured above the area tree for these areas.

  • A theme configured at an area node in the navigation pane when a specific application scope is selected, is applied to all IndustraForms in that area, and its child areas, for the specific application scope selected.

    Theme configured at an area node with the Work Instructions scope selected

In the above example, the Theme is applied to all Work Instruction IndustraForm templates in the Distillation area and its child areas (Crude Oil Distillation Unit and Vacuum Distillation Unit). This Theme overrides the theme configured above the area tree and the theme in the Plant section for the Work Instruction IndustraForm templates in these areas.

In summary, IndustraForm templates take on the theme that is most specific for their scope and area.
