I'm trying to apply a custom theme to an existing map by assigning from a file. When I do this it alters the Main Topic, but none of the other topics are changed. Is there a way to apply the theme such that it changes all the topics? After applying the theme if I check the modify theme screen everything looks right, but the topics are unchanged on the map.

While in your map:
Go to Design > Map Theme > Modify > select a group to format in the left side bar > on the map, select your topic to modify. Left-click to select "modify topic format" > click "apply & close" in the top ribbon to set the changes.

Keep in mind that the changes will only be made to a map that has not already been formatted. So if you have gone through and changed the colors of the Central Topic as well as the Main Topics, changes will not be made. Use Ctrl A and the select the eraser button highlighted below.

"Use Ctrl A and the select the eraser button highlighted below." This is what I needed. Thanks.
