I’m working with @Jeremym on this project so thought i’d jump in and try and explain the state of play (hope thats ok)
The issue we’re having is the flow component seems to use the ‘Default Colours’ primary and secondary colours for the background alternating colours and the ‘Default Colours Body Text’ colour for the body text rather than any article style colours we could change for this article style.
For example if we wanted to alternate between:
- black background and white text on the first box
- white background and black text on the second
we could change the default colours to be correct on one of the flow items but not both as they all use the same default colours. So one of the sets of bullet points would be incorrect. (not to mention that having effects elesewhere! )
It may be possible to overwrite which colours being used for the flow component, but i don’t think it uses any of the colours accessible in article styles / elements, unless i’m missing it (very possible!)
Does that make any sense?
