    Pie Chart Colors Different From Legend Colors

      Hi, I'm pretty new to QV and I'm using V10. I've made a two-dimensional pie chart with a calculated expression color. The legend seems to display the correct/expected color; however, the chart doesn't. In the attached image I've hovered over a slice with an unexpected color, and the corresponding legend color is shown to be different. What am I doing wrong? Thanks! -Reid

          Also, hovering over the second dimension slices, it looks like those colors match the legend's. This chart displays the two next-deepest levels in a Hierarchy().

          Dimension 1:

          //we're at a subtree
          =IF($(vHighestSelectedLevel) = 0,[Hierarchy Name1],
          IF($(vHighestSelectedLevel) = 1,[Hierarchy Name2],
          IF($(vHighestSelectedLevel) = 2,[Hierarchy Name3],
          IF($(vHighestSelectedLevel) = 3,[Hierarchy Name4],
          IF($(vHighestSelectedLevel) = 4,[Hierarchy Name5],
          IF($(vHighestSelectedLevel) = 5,[Hierarchy Name6],[Hierarchy Name6]))))))


          Dimension 2:

          =IF($(vLowestSelectedLevel) - $(vHighestSelectedLevel) >= 1,
          IF($(vHighestSelectedLevel) = 0,[Hierarchy Name2],
          IF($(vHighestSelectedLevel) = 1,[Hierarchy Name3],
          IF($(vHighestSelectedLevel) = 2,[Hierarchy Name4],
          IF($(vHighestSelectedLevel) = 3,[Hierarchy Name5],
          IF($(vHighestSelectedLevel) = 4,[Hierarchy Name6],
          IF($(vHighestSelectedLevel) = 5,[Hierarchy Name7],[Hierarchy Name7]))))))
          , 0 )

            In the chart, it looks like the color that an inner slice gets is equal to that of its clockwise-most child slice.
