I want to change my theme while the shop is paused but it doesn't seem like I can without publishing again.  I am not ready to do that. Help

Hi @Creatived,

Ted here from Shopify, thanks for posting your query! 

So you should be able to add a new theme to your admin whilst on the Pause and Build plan for sure. Are you hoping to buy a new theme or are you trying to add a theme file to the account? Would you be able to share the error that's appearing when you try to add a new theme to the account? I'm happy to help! 

Many thanks, 

Ted | Social Care @ Shopify
