I’m trying to figure out how Metabase maintains color scheme consistency (in a viz) across multiple questions in the same dashboard.
For eg., assigning “categoryA” to blue in a visualization for Q1 should mean “categoryA” in Q2 should also be blue when both questions are in the same dashboard.
Using the same column name seems to do it for the most part, as does having the same table source. However, I’ve noticed a couple of instances where I couldn’t quite figure out why the colors weren’t as I expected. Every so often Metabase will also take it upon itself to assign a color not available in the default color palette (possibly as a result of having too many categories? But this isn’t exactly convincing either, seeing as duplicated colors are not uncommon to see at all on Metabase).
I might have missed something, but I couldn’t find anything specifically addressing this in docs. Any suggestions/tips would be much appreciated!
