i am applying conditional formatting to assign colors to calendar events in outlook 2016. the process is pretty straightforward - i pick a word as a condition (child's name, location of event, etc.).

but the colors outlook gives me are limited and ugly!

the "red" is actually closer to fuchsia or coral, "maroon" is actually pink, and i find most of the rest of the colors are obnoxious. the only colors i can stand are green, yellow, and blue.

i cannot find a way to change these default colors. is there one? where is it hidden?
