Use Specific Colours in Tableau

You want to use a specific colour which you haven’t created a custom colour palette for yet? Simply go into your colour editor and double click the colour you want to change. You can then:

  • Select one of the colours offered there
  • Select a colour using the window that allows you to select from 16 million colours
  • Use the RGB or HTML code to select your colour
  • Use the colour picker to pick a colour from anywhere on your screen
  • Drop the colour you selected into custom colours at the bottom left of the dialogue to use again later
