Data Colours change in Power BI Service

Hi,

 

I find my a particular bar graph in my Power BI desktop has the data colour as Blue. After publishing to the service, the data colour changes to maroon. Tried everything.. doesn't seem to remain blue. How to fix this? Is there a bug?

 

Thanks,

Aasheesh

@nospang@v-shex-msft,

 

I used a work around by adding multiple values and then changing the default colour to the colour i wanted and then removing the multiple values. It works.

 

Thanks for all your inputs.

Re: Data Colours change in Power BI Service

hi @v-shex-msft,

 

I am using a normal stacked column chart. the second visualisation icon in the power bi desktop.

 

The column is coloured in blue (colour code - 008AFF) in my power BI desktop.. but when i publish it to power BI Service the same column changes to maroon with the same colour code.

Hi @aasheesh1,

 

I can't reproduce your issue, it works on my side.(the custom color not changed, other color has changed)

 

Capture.PNGServiceCapture2.PNGDesktop

 

Which version of power bi desktop you used? If you re-publish a report with sample content, does this issue appears again?


My test environment: Win10 64bit, power bi Version: 2.45.4704.442 64-bit (April 2017).

Re: Data Colours change in Power BI Service

I created an issue about this yesterday.  There seems to be a bug in the service.

@v-shex-msft Try it with bars that have only a single color/value.

Re: Data Colours change in Power BI Service

I can reproduce and confirm this issue occurs when published with one value.

As an additional issue it is now also not possible to use a color other than the standard color (with a single value) in Power BI desktop with the latest update (May 2017).

 

I have created a workaround by adding a dummy value in order to use more than one value.

Re: Data Colours change in Power BI Service

This bug seems to be back and it's killing me! 

My bar chart and pie chart colors change when I publish to the web, and my image file is missing completely. 

Help!!!

Re: Data Colours change in Power BI Service

I had the same issue with custom colours set in the Desktop then changing upon publishing to the service. I am pretty sure I used Format Painter to apply the colours to a new visual from an exisiting one with the correct pallette, so I think this was the cause in my case.

My fix was to go into each colour and open the custom colour dialogue, delete the last character of the hex string and then immediatly replace it (tricked it into thinking there was a colour change) and hit enter. Had to do this for each colour in each new visual but it stuck upon publishing to the service.

 

Cheers

Gavin
