Bonjour, sauriez-vous comment avoir plus de choix concernant la palette de couleur proposée pour faire ces mises en forme conditionnelle ? Il y a notamment une couleur qui s'appelle "Personnalisé" dans la liste déroulante mais je ne vois pas comment la modifier, elle est par défaut bleu, le même bleu que le thème Outlook.Merci par avance
