define a name for a HEX color

asked Oct 22, 2018 in Question / help by BAz
Is it possible to define a name for a color and assign it to a specific HEX value? For example, I use the color #f9b500 a lot in my diagrams. Instead of having to type the HEX code each time, I would like to define a name at the top of my diagram, or in an include template,  (e.g. color MYCOMPANYORANGE #f9b500) and then just use that name in my diagram.

Is this possible?

Thanks,
