Does anyone know how to change the theme colors in Google slides? I don't mean the 'Custom' colors, but rather, the 'Theme' colors? I can't seem to figure this out. I have to create a corporate slide master template with Google SLides, and I'd like to set the Theme colors so that they match up with the brand palette.

This is a really late reply, but the solution I found, was to export your slides to Powerpoint, set the theme colors there, and then re-upload your PPTX file to Google Slides. It picks up the color theme as set on Powerpoint.
