Assign unique colors to chart elements in Google Sheets


What’s changing:

Now, when you’re working on a chart in Sheets, you can give a design element (such as a bar on a bar graph or a point or line on a line graph) a unique color, instead of all similar elements being the same color. This works for bar charts, column charts, line charts, scatter charts and for certain series in combination charts.

Why you’d use it


You can emphasize a part of a chart by changing its color to a different one than the main color of the series, allowing you to tell a better story.
