Make the custom palette option available.


Tableau Desktop 7.0, 8.0


Add the preferences.tps file to the My Tableau Repository folder as specified in the Creating Custom Color Palettes article.

In some cases, the My Tableau Repository location between Desktop 7.0 and 8.0 may be different. If this is the case, for Desktop 8.0, move the preferences.tps file back to the My Tableau Repository folder. To identify the specific location of the My Tableau Repository folder, select File > Repository Location.
