Description Vlask 2018-10-21 10:40:24 UTC
Have often updated charts with 300+ values and want to change bar/text colors. Sadly conditional formating is based only on number values.
Best will be adding new option to color choosing dialog at charts, which would set color or each bar/text value in chart same as input source. With this option i could easily mass change color of input values and charts colors will change with it automaticaly.

Actual Results:
Unable to set charts colors to same value as input cells text colors.

Expected Results:
Bars/x/y values in charts have same color as input values.

Reproducible: Always

User Profile Reset: No

Additional Info:
Let me choose option "same as input" in color choosing window.

Example of chart type i need to change colors

Example of my chart - colors are based on text in A, not values in B, so i cant use conditional formating. Instead i need to change bar colors and maybe also values to same color as input text colors, as these are already set.
Conditional formating of chart colors based on text values will be possible too (eg. if word NVIDIA found, then set green, if ATI set red), but i guess that option "same colors as input data" would be more universal.

If I'm not wrong it is already implemented.
