Data visualisation / publishing issue

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,


I am having an issue where my sheet layer shows a plot which is coloured based on the Universe of the fixtures, which works really well.


However when i publish that sheet layer it looses the colours for the fixture and shows them all as grey.

The data visualisation key that it produces in the annotation, does however output with the correct colours.


Any thoughts on a simple setting i might be missing?


Worth mentioning its 2020.

Hi Nikolay,


Thanks for this. Unfortunately it is set to colour. 


Ive noticed it does the same if I go to export pdf instead of publish. However if I export image it’s fine. 


Are there some global pdf settings for export that I’m missing?


it seems odd that the logo and annotations are still colour. It’s just the data visualisation that isn’t?

Hi ya,


So as an update, if i have the pen set to black and the colour assigned to the "fill", when exported this seems fine.

If i change the pen to a colour and the fill to white, it does'nt seem to export the pen as colour. Its just a black wireframe fixture. (this is a wire frame view btw).
