Colors clustered column chart

Hello,

 

I am currently creating a dashboard and would like to use a "Line and Clustered column chart". However, when I add several indices the color fade.

I would like to have a coloration as the one obtained with the stacked column chart, or at least somewhere in the middle.

How can I do so ?

 

Best regards

Hello VictoriaD,

 

I think the problem is that the columns are too thin. Consider widening them by navigating to Format > Visual > Columns > Spacing > increaese minimum category width.

 

Let me know if that works.

This was made with our Custom Visual creator tool PBIVizEdit.com. With this tool,

  • anyone, irrespective of technical skills, can create their own visuals
  • 15 minutes to create a visual from scratch
  • opens up many additional attributes to edit (for e.g. labels, tooltips, legends position, etc)

Give this a shot and let us know if you face any problem/errors.
You can use the editor to modify your visual further (some modifications cannot be done in Power BI window and have to be in editor).

Hi, @VictoriaD

So you want the legend color to be more easily recognizable.
One way to do this is to manually change the color of the data color and choose the brighter color.
A quicker way is to select a highlighted theme in the view.

Hi, thank you for your answer ! Then I would have to choose my data as Categorical, isn't it ? Because when I do so I have a scrolling bar and cannot see the whole plot at once :

And this does not change with the different parameters I use. Do you know how I could do ? Best !

Yes thats right !! These options will only be available with the axis as categorical.
