Click on the “+” in Brand Colors to select your brand’s colors or to specify their exact hex codes.
You can name your color (potentially to clarify how it should be used), delete the color, or edit it by hovering your mouse over the thumbnail.
If you choose to edit the color, the menu will allow you to update the color or change between RGB and CMYK color profiles.
If you are going to make materials for both print and digital use, then it is important to set RGB and CMYK versions of your brand colors. Learn more about the importance of the color profiles here.

Modify the settings for how your users experience Lucidpress:
- Enable standard templates
Turn the standard Lucidpress tempaltes on/off. If you don't want your users accessing non-brand templates, it is a good idea to turn this off.
- Enable blank documents
Disable the option for your users to create blank documents. If you turn this off, your users would only be able to create documents from your template library. Great for staying on-brand! (This does not affect team admins)
- Enable InDesign documents to be imported by users
Disable the option for your users to import InDesign documents.
- Enable non-brand colors for all users Disable the option for your users to access non-brand colors. They will only see the colors that you have set in your brand settings. (note: you should have white and black in your brand colors since your users won't have access to these colors if they are not in your brand settings)
- Enable non-brand fonts for all users
Disable the option for your users to have access to non-brand fonts. Users will only be able to select fonts that you have designated in your brand settings.
- Enable print checks when downloading files
The print checks will look for image quality, RGB/CYMK usage, and bleeds. If you don't want this to be an option when downloading, you can disable this.
- Enable PDF download of documents
If you don't want your users downloading your documents, turn this off.
- Set default CMYK colors
If you have a set CMYK color with your printer, chose the standard CYMK option so your users won't need to find it each time they download.
- Set default bleed
If your printer requires a specific bleed, you can automatically lock a bleed setting on all documents.
- Enable web publishing of documents
Turn this off if you don't want your users to publish documents on the web.
- Enable image downloads
Turn this off if you don't want your users downloading images from your documents.
- Enable Bing image search
Disable this option if you don't want your users searching for images on Bing to place in their documents.
- Enable Unsplash image search
Disable this option if you don't want your users searching for images on Unsplash to place in their documents.
- Enable Icon finder search
Disable this option if you don't want your users searching for images on Icon Finder to place in their documents.

Open up your fonts or paragraph styles and you’ll see the branded options up top as well. Voila!
As for images and logos, simply click on “Images” (left side of the editor) to open your Image Manager. Click “Brand Images” and you’re there.
