formatting row headers in Matrix

Hello everybody,

I have 3 different line areas in my matrix. I would like to give the first line area header a different color. How does it work?

Thanks for your feedback. Unfortunately, this does not quite meet customer requirements. As I understand it, there is no way to highlight individual groups of lines in color. Are there any other matrix visuals from the store that can do more in this case?

Hi, @ITAL 

As mentioned by @amitchandak ,If you just want to change then color of head, you can change  the font color\background color of row headers in "Format Pane".However, it will  applied to all subtotal headers.


You can consider  using conditional formatting  to formate row value as below:


Conditional formatting = IF(HASONEVALUE(Table1[Segment]),"","lightblue")

@ITAL , Tou can choose a color for headers ( As of now same color for all headers, in case of matrix)

Also conditional formatting is not allowed on Matrix row values
