Set a custom palette in Cognos 11.1.1 as default for the whole dashboarding environment

Dear IBM, We would like to have the posibility to set a custom Palette which is saved under "Global" as default for the whole dashboarding environment.This is to maintain our corporate identity.

    and we need to be able to import/export this palette easily between environments - just like themes, extensions, visualizations library are included in the deployment options. Thanks!

    Not only set this in Dashboarding, it is for all the tools. Many companies have their own color lists, and it's only to be expected that you can set a certain Global Palette as the default base for any visualization in a report or dashboard (or any other asset with visual aspects). Great idea, i'm joining!

    Another limitation in Dashboards for maintaining corporate identity is the font. e.g. Segoe fonts not available and cannot be installed as in Reporting
