No, I don't believe so.
Yes, you can change the default tab colors by editing the .Twb source code.
Please backup a copy of your workbook before trying this.
Step 1: Right click on your workbook file then open with Notepad
Step 2: Search your worksheet name using notepad find (CTRL+F)
Step 3: Just add 'tab-color='000000' tag after the worksheet name tag. Don't forget to put a space between worksheet name and tab-color tag .
'000000' change with your preferred Hex color code
Step 4: Save the notepad file. (CTRL+S) Then close it
Step 5: Open the workbook again, you can see the new color.
I haven't posted it anywhere yet. I feel it as a simple solution:)
thanks for the Tabwiki post and encouragement

ding.ding.ding..we have a winner! Thank you .Indumon! This is easy enough that even I can handle it.
It works, Indumon!!! Thanks. If I may push my luck just a tad further --- how would one change the font color on the tab? Thanks.
Indumon, is there a way that I can add password-protection to the XML code so clients cannot open my twbx worksheets and steal my Tableau design? I would like to limit them to only the dashboards OR they view my twbx files in the Reader. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
This is a great solution! Thanks for sharing it!
I was able to change the background color of the tabs thanks to your instructions, but I can't figure out how to change also the text of the tabs.
Also, when I published the workbook, the tabs have their original colors... How can I publish the tabs with the custom color?
Hi, Sorry for the delay in responding.
Regarding the font color change I have tried with few formatting tags but
not able to succeed.

thanks for the update and trying.
If you do happen to figure out how to do it or you have any hint on how it could possibly be achieved, please let me know.
