themed color palette in mindmup 2.0
More useful (themed) color palette in mindmup 2.0.
Current colors of the color palette are not organised. If they'd be organised like MS Office themes (e.g. dark color on top, then one color tone lighter, etc) it would be easier to color children based on the color of its parent.

Total happiness would be if one could select different color palettes. For example when there are a lot of children.
Hi, check out https://www.mindmup.com/news/2018/08/09/custom-theme.html — you can now create your own palette
Since mind maps are visualizations of data, it's important to be able to have a versatile, custom color-scheme feature. Other web-based programs (e.g., website-creation, infographic templates, etc.), include grids with certain preselected colors, but there is also the ability to add hex color codes to create many more colors. It's especially useful when you're trying to create gradations of color on a chart to show items that are related but still distinct.
That would be helpful with these mind map categories, subcategories, and listed items - which are related, but not identical. On the current Mind Mup color grid, there are two or three somewhat related colors in each of the major color families, but that's not enough.
Perhaps MindMup can look towards Word's SmartArt... there are different colour schemes (e.g. different gradients of the same colour; or a rainbow of colours, etc.) and different layouts which are just a button away... very much automated...

this could even be automated:
for every new child of the main node -> select the next color column of the current color theme.
for every new child of this newly made child -> select the next color row of it's parent color (i.e. every child will be colored lighter).
Perhaps do the line colors as well and a quick colorful, and readable, mindmap is done!
