Hi Mariaan,

 Thanks for sharing the idea.

 Have you tried  https://labs.outsystems.net/ThemeCustomizer/  already?
 If you did, what shortcomings do you find on the Theme Customizer vs. the approach you are proposing?

Why would it be faster and easier?
 There are a zillions possibilities to add to a class, so it would be very confusing.
 The autocomplete in the CSS is pretty straightforward.

 that said, something handy like less/sass is always a plus :)

Hi Joao,

 I've tried the ThemeCustomizer, works very well. It seems to me that it is for the initial colour theme and layout but I am new to OutSystems, so I could be wrong.

 Visual Studio has a built-in Style Editor and I have found it very useful over the years.

I've seen issues with the Theme Customizer .. it misses some of the styles like the Sub Menu.

Yup, the theme customizer has many issues.
