I am new to Qlik Sense, but an experienced Tableau user (among other tools). I am having a difficult time understanding colors. I have a bar chart with two measures for a single dimension. One measures is a calculated field, for I am limiting my data to a subset. Imagine the first measure is "myPercent" and the second measure is "USApercent." I now want to have a different color bar for these two measures.
Under Appearance > Colors, my options are limited to single, multi, by measure, by expression.
There has to be a simple answer but I am not finding it in manual, videos, or google search. Thanks for your patience with a newbie.
Create the measures as Master Items. Then assign the colors you want the measures to have to the measure Master Items you just created. Finally replace the measures in your bar chart with the Master Items.
See assigning colors to master items for more information
you can assign color to master items as Gysbert has suggested or another option, you can assign colors to each master dimension value, as showed in this video
