Default Need To Lock Colors In Graphics

When importing slides from other presentations, the graphics (even charts from Excel) change colors depending on what background design I use. I wouldn't mind if the colors they change to actually went well with the background, but they change to colors that are probably the WORST possible color choice. Is there any way I can somehow lock the colors of the graphics in imported slides and only change the background design? I also need to preserve the animations in the graphics - so I can't simply paste the graphics as a picture. Seems to me, graphics (lines, shapes, etc.) should be able to be dropped in from an outside source without being tied to and affected by a design color scheme. No reason for a red fire engine to change to blue.

Thanks for any solutions or suggestions out there.

If you want the colours to not change with the theme you must use non theme colours. Simple way is the change the fill to a custom colour by increaing the R OR G OR B value by 1 in custom colours
