1. Are you working on a Power BI trial (free) license?
2. Are you working on the online version or desktop?
1 - The Power BI free trial has limited options.
2 - The online version user control seem to be more limited than the desktop version.
Hope this helps.
Not sure if this was an update - but colors can now be selected for specific levels in a chart and published version remains the same.
Categor 1 Colors (Select desired colors)
Colors will change in visual.
Colors will remain the selected color when published
I do see similar issue when I publish the report. I have pie chart and clustered bar chart with multiple values, I manually edited the color in clustered bar chart to sync with pie chart. Once I deploy this report these changes are gone. This there any work around for this issue?
I created a bar chart and pie chart from the same dataset and selected the colors.
When published it looked fine.
1. If you could share more details I might be able to replicate your issue and see if there is a workaround.
2. Is the data for both charts coming from the same dataset? Different data sets? Do the datasets have a relationship?
I see this issue in my reports as well and I just use the defualt colour scheme. It is very frustrating when a manager comes to you asking why the colours in your reports are not consistent. I build them consistently in Power BI Desktop, but when I open them in the service they are different and there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to which ones change and which ones stay the same. I would love to know if this issue is going to be fixed by MS anytime soon.
I have now encoutered the color chaning as well! even though I have set the colors explicitly. I am using 2019 FEB version of PBI and publishing to Premium workspace. Sometime even the Workspace and APP is disalighned.
