Customizing themes for embedded dashboards and Explores is a feature that must be enabled by Looker. Contact your Looker account manager to update your license for this feature.
Custom themes are not supported on embedded Looks. Custom themes are available only for embedded dashboards and embedded Explores.
The options for custom themes continue to grow as we add more functionality. When we add an option for custom themes, any existing themes are assigned the default value for the new option. The default value can then be modified using the theme editor. To see what’s new, check in with the Custom theme settings section below, or check the Theme : manage themes API documentation page for the list of settings supported for themes.
You can define themes for embedded dashboards, embedded Explores, and the edit window for tiles in an embedded dashboard from the Themes page in the Platform section of the Admin panel:
You can use custom themes to customize the appearance of your embedded Looker dashboards and Explores. You can use themes to customize font family, text color, background color, button color, tile color, and other visual elements.
