Custom Color Palettes Not Saved When Opening or Sharing Workbook


Published: 07 Jul 2015
Last Modified Date: 07 Jul 2016

Issue

When opening an existing workbook, previously-assigned, custom color palettes might reset to default palettes.

Environment

Tableau Desktop

Resolution

Create a calculated field to limit the affected field to under 10,000 values. For example:
IF [Response] = "Strongly Agree"
OR [Response] = "Agree"
OR [Response] = "Neutral"
OR [Response] = "Disagree"
OR [Response] = "Strongly Disagree"
THEN [Response]
ELSE "n/a"
END

 

Cause

To improve performance, the palette encoding is limited to 10,000 values.
