Coloring a bar chart in dimension or measure?

Hello everyone,

Is there a way to set a bar chart's colors in either the dimension or measure?

I am asking because currently we are coloring by business segment in the "colors and legend" setting in Qlik Sense, which works. We are then taking the raw data into PowerPoint via NPrinting and the color codes do not transfer through. We are able to bring over the expressions in the dimension and measure though and place them into Powerpoint to generate our data. I would assume if you can color code in there they will transfer over to an NPrinting report.

Any thoughts on a way to assign colors to business segments in the Qlik dimension or measure?


Thanks so much.

In Qlik Sense you have many differen ways to color.

You can set a color in a Masteritem for a Dimension or a Measure.

Or you can color it by a Expression if you want different Colors for Different Values in a Dimension or a Measure.

You can choose that in the Color section of a visualization

Re: Coloring a bar chart in dimension or measure?

I know the ways I can do colors in Qlik Sense, but bringing that into Qlik NPrinting through the native chart support functionality is what I am struggling with. There does not seem to be any options in either program to keep the color expressions I built in my Qlik Sense Dashboard.

Does anyone have further thoughts?
