Re: Report colors changing when published

Hi Madinenv,

Questions:
1. Are you working on a Power BI trial (free) license?

2. Are you working on the online version or desktop?

 

Considerations:
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.

Re: Report colors changing when published

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.
For example:
Visualizations/Paintbrush(editing tab):
Categor 1 Colors (Select desired colors)
Colors will change in visual.
Colors will remain the selected color when published 🙂

Re: Report colors changing 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?

Re: Report colors changing when published

Hi Harin,

I created a bar chart and pie chart from the same dataset and selected the colors.
When published it looked fine.


My thoughts:
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?

Re: Report colors changing when published

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.

Re: Report colors changing when published

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. Color problem2.JPG

Re: Report colors changing when published

I see the same issue still and wonder when this issue will be fixed. I see this for pie charts and I try to change the colors again and re publish when i see the colors messed up in the web. It will be good if power bi can retain the colors based on the classification which we use for the data.

Re: Report colors changing when published

I have the same issue and your solution worked for me. Once the dashboard is published on the bi service, then I edit colors again (even though they look the same), then I resave it and republish it from the powerbi service. After that, the export link ' colors look correct.
