Themes For Shapes

Hi everyone,

 

Does anyone know if it is currently possible to change the colour of a shape to that of the theme of the report?

@matjw10,

Select the Shape map, go to Format> Data colors, you can choose Theme colors and apply them to your map.

Re: Themes For Shapes

Hi,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

I was refering to the shapes within the insert ribbon rather than the shape map.

When I change the theme all of the visuals are affected however nothing else. Wasn't sure if there was currently a way of changing this.

 

Thanks

@matjw10,

Yes. shapes will not be affected. You would need to select the shape, go to Format shape, choose theme color for Line or Fill or Backgroud.

Thank you v-yuezhe-msft.

 

I was hoping this could be automated as the themes change bit it looks like it will have to be a manual change.

Re: Themes For Shapes

I was hoping that the September '17 update for Power BI would list shapes in the cardName values list. I got excited when I saw shape: Shape listed but haven't had any success after an hour playing with the json file. Has anyone else had the chance to try in the lastest version?
