Persistent data colors for measures?


Is there a way to have some persistance in Data colors?

Case: I have a dashboard with a few key KPI. I would like these to have this same colors when I use them in different charts (example: Sales always in blue, order quantity in grey, sales target in orange. Whatever the chart type and the order I drop them). 

It is not ideal to have to go manually change data colors each time I create a chart.

 And it makes no sense that the color of the line on a  "Line and clustered column" chart would change when adding another column measure


PS: I am aware of thene coloring but it is not what I am looking for,

@MartinPBI , I doubt there is one. As conditional formatting does not work on more than one measure, also no way to set based on the measure.


The only way as of now to set manually.
