When it comes to using colors in charts, try to keep it simple. A good rule of thumb is the 60-30-10 principle: use a primary color that dominates 60% of your project area, a secondary color that takes up 30% of the project to visualize important data, and a third, accent color that draws particular attention to 10% of your data.
Change the colors of the chart
- Click on the chart to select it, then expand the Color drop-down in the Settings panel on the right.
- Disable the Use one color option to choose a color for each variable. Click on the boxes to choose colors by using the color picker or entering a hex color code.
To change colors used in the legend and axes of the chart, expand the Fonts tab in the right sidebar.
Adjust the colors of individual tabs
- Click on the chart to select it, then expand the Settings: Global menu on the top of the Settings panel on the right.
- Select the tab you wish to customize.
- Expand the Color dropdown and adjust the color. This will only change the colors for the data in the tab selected.
