    Hi Nicolas, 

    Thank you for your forum post!  You can use custom colors in Grapher.  To do so use the following steps:

    1. Click the Bar Chart layer in the Object Manager.
    2. In the Property Managerclick the Fill tab. 
    3. Next to the Foreground color field, click the Custom colors button:
    4. In the Colors dialog, click the Custom tab.
    5. Type in your desired values, or manually select a color.
    6. Click OK. 

    *Steps are listed for Grapher 13.  Previous versions also include this feature, which can be found using similar steps.*

    If you have any additional questions, or need steps for a previous version, please feel free to email us at support@goldensoftware.com

    Thank you,

    Hi Brittany, thank you for your answer.

     

    Apologies if I was not clear enough. Each of the floating bar is linked to the Worksheet at the bottom of the image. Each line includes :

    -KP location (column B),

    -Top and Base of soil unit (column D and E resp.)

    -Soil Type (Column G)

    I would like to plot the Sand and the Clay in different colours. Thus I added "manually" the H column including the label of colours "Pale Yellow" and "Light Orange" with the Color column option.



    What I try to do now is to use custom colour (see in the worksheet line 4 column H). It seems that Grapher does not accept custom colour values (as RGB(0,15,220) in this example).

     

    PS: I am using Grapher 11

     

    Regards,

    Hi Nicolas,

    Thank you for your response. My apologies, I see I did not answer your question. It is not currently possible to use custom colors in Grapher's worksheet.  I have added a vote on your behalf to our suggestion file to enable this functionality in future versions of Grapher.  Thank you for your question, and suggestion.  Should we enable this in the future, we will let you know via email. 

    Thank you,

    Brittany Bodane

    Hello Nicolas,

    With the release of Grapher 15 Preview today, you are now able to use RGB values in a color column to fill your floating bar chart bars with custom colors. The format is just as you defined in your original post: "R124 G147 B12".

    If you have active maintenance for your Grapher license, you can follow these instructions to participate in Grapher 15 Preview: How Can I Participate In Grapher's Preview Track? If you do not have active maintenance, you can renew your maintenance or upgrade your old license to participate in Grapher 15 Preview.

    Thanks!
