Consistent cross-tab chart colours

I'm working with a crosstab table that looks similar to the following.

/aradhwr7CTAAAAAASUVORK5CYII=


From this I am creating a multi-pie chart, one per row which is split into true and false portions. However, what I am unable to do is set the colours for these portions, which is important given this is a report that is drilled down to from similar looking reports, and things become very confusing should those colours switch around as they sometimes do! How would I go about achieving this?


In the chart editor I have been able to hack a solution by setting the series colours (one series is true, the other false - though I don't see how that makes sense!), but upon leaving the chart editor and saving the report the colours switch again.

Hi Philip,


Do you have a few minutes to screen-share today so that you can take me through what you are trying to accomplish, and possibly explore a few ideas? If so, please let me know what time works best for you. I am on United States Mountain Time.

I'll be on a Linux machine, and from what I can tell your screen share solution won't work on that platform. Any alternatives? I may be able to get hold of a PC, but I cannot be sure till tomorrow.

Hi Philip,


Per our conversation I am going to close this ticket. As I mentioned, in the long run it may be worth looking into increasing the allocated JVM to your instance:

If you run into any problems or have any other questions, just reply and the case will be re-opened!
