When it comes to using colors in charts, try to keep it simple - choose a few contrasting colors and make sure you use the same colors throughout your report.
Change chart colors
- Click to select the chart, then expand the Color tab in the settings panel on the right.
- Click on the color box and choose colors from your brand colors and theme colors, or use the color picker or enter a hex color code.
- Toggle the Use one color option to choose a color for each variable or use one color for the whole chart.
To change the colors used in the chart legend, axis labels and axis titles, expand the Fonts tab in the right sidebar and click on the Change font color box.
Set opacity level
- Click on a chart to select it
- Use the Opacity slider in the settings panel on the right or type in the percentage next to the slider.
- Check the Chart colors only box to apply the opacity only to colors and not to the labels, values and axis titles.
If you're working with any of the pie-type charts (Pie, Doughnut, Semicircle, or Irregular pie chart), you can change the text color of the callouts. Expand the Color tab and click on the Callout color box to select the color you want.
Adjust the colors of individual tabs
- Click on a chart to select it, and in the Data Set dropdown at the top of the settings panel, choose a tab by its name.
- Expand the Color tab and adjust the color. This will only change the colors in the selected tab.
- To reset the colors of an individual tab back to global settings, click Reset all to global settings at the bottom of the Data Set dropdown.
