Color options for Custom Graphs

Hi Forum - ers,

 

I have 2 questions about adding color properties to 2 different Custom graphs.

 

Firstly, how do I change the colors of the categories in a Custom Stacked Bar/Line graph?

 

Second, I have another Custom Bar/Line graph & I want to add a 'Green/Yellow/Red' gradient color to the background. my research tells me to add a Color Role to the Custom graph but I can't seem to get to allow me (grayed out).

 

Any help appreciated.

 

Thanks

Re: Color options for Custom Graphs

Hi, I found that it's not straightforward to add selected colours to a Stacked Column chart. I found it was really a trial & error process to get the colours I wanted. Particularly for a stacked Column, I found I was changing some random settings, then changing the Data Color under the Styles tab. Sometimes it worked but usually din't so I spent quite some time getting the colours I needed.
