Issue with desktop maintaining color options

When I set my color options on different graphs and save the .pbix file, the color options I choose change; the application is not maintaining my choices.

 

I am running version 2.68.5432.81.

 

Any suggestions on how to get the color options to stay with what I choose?

 

Thank you!

Hi @michelle077

 

How do you set the color options for visuals? Which specific visuals color options are not saving? 

Please share detail steps for us to reproduce the issue.

@v-qiuyu-msft ,

It happens when I use any of the graphs; bar graphs, pie graphs, etc.

To change the color, I go to the format section and click on the data colors and then choose the specific color I am looking for.  I will save the report and when completed with the file, I will publish it and then close the file.

 

The custom color typically does not hold when published, so I go to the Edit Report link and change the colors back to what I had originally chosen.

 

Next, I will re-open the .pbix file and see the colors did not hold and change them in this location as well.

 

Regards,

Michelle

Hi @michelle077

 

Thank you for your detail information. But I'm not able to reproduce the issue with Power BI desktop version 2.69.5467.1751 64-bit (May 2019). Please update your Power BI desktop to the same version as ours then test again.
