How To Customise Notion Text Colour & Text Background Colour (To Any Colour!)

HAY, how art you? If you are into productivity apps or digital planners, you would be familiar with Notion, an all-in-one application for organising your life. Notion has a really minimal and sleek interface that is highly customisable, but changing its text colour is seemingly limited to their default colour choices of about 10 colours. However, there is a workaround that allows you to change your texts in Notion to any colour, and that is, by using codes! In this article, I’ll be sharing three codes that allow you to customise Notion text colour and text background colour to any colour. Are you ready to have some fun with colours in Notion?
