In MicroStrategy Web 10.2, user can apply a formatting theme to an entire Report Service document or to a specific object, such as a selector or text field, on a Report Service document.
Every theme contains a set of formats for the different types of objects on a document. For example, a theme contains formatting options for reports, selectors, text, and so on. For each object, the theme can apply any formatting setting, such as font color, background color, borders,and so on, that applies to the type of object.
Using themes allows user to deploy a single look and feel across all documents or selected documents. Using themes also allows user to spend less time formatting documents.
