Have ever encountered any issues with the colors in Tableau?
I know that Tableau comes with a pretty good color palette, but of course, that is not going to cover all your needs.
So here is how you can change it:
❶ Open “Preferences.tps” file
You can find the file under the following link C:\Users\_your username_\Documents\My Tableau Repository
The file can be easily opened with Notepad, but I prefer doing it with Notepad++ because the code looks more organized.
❷ Look for a new color palette
In order to show a color Tableau needs a hexadecimal color code (HEX Color code) that needs to be inserted in the file above.
If your company doesn’t have a color palette that restricts you to use, on the internet are various options like:
❸ Add the code in the file
The procedure is really simple, you just have to add the following code before the </preferences> line.
You can consider the code below and just replace the bold text.
<color-palette name=”Color Palette Name” type=”regular”>
<color>#HEX Code 01</color>
<color>#HEX Code 02 </color>
<color>#HEX Code 03 </color>
<color>#HEX Code 014</color>
