Text Font Colors

Text color formatting is applicable to tables and headline reports only.

You can display report metric values in one of the following colors by inserting the color, between brackets [ ], at the start of the custom number syntax. For example:

[Blue]#,#.## 

Available color codes:

  • Black
  • Blue
  • Cyan
  • Green
  • Magenta
  • Red
  • Yellow
  • White

You can also use hexadecimal color codes with the following syntax:

[color=99AE00]#,#.##

Do not insert a hash (#) symbol before the hexadecimal value, which voids your color formatting.

Cell Background Color

You can use hexadecimals to change the background color of cells with the following syntax:

[backgroundcolor=00FF00]#,#.##

To combine background color and font color syntax:

[color=99AAEE][backgroundcolor=000000]#,#.##

Hexadecimal Color Quick Reference

The following web-safe colors coded may be used in your formatting:

Default Chart Colors

Chart colors are often presented as two-color gradients between a primary and secondary color. In cases where there is no gradient, such as a line, the primary color is used. In some cases, secondary colors are used for highlighting.
