1.57 FAQ-179 How do I change the colors of my 2D/3D bar or column plot?

Last Update: 3/19/2018

There are two approaches:

Approach 1: Create special points

Hold down the CTRL key while clicking one of the columns or bars on your graph. A single column/bar will be selected for editing.

Alternatively, you can click on a column or bar (selecting all the columns/bars), pause, then click a second time to select a single data point.

Use the Fill Color button, Button Fill Color.png, on the Style toolbar to assign a new color to that data point, or double-click on the point to open the Plot Details dialog and modify all properties.

Approach 2: Use another column as the color indexing data

Set up control of the column/bar fill color by Indexing on another dataset or choose to Increment, then customize the color for each component in the Color List tab.
