Is there a way to assign colors to a chart legend other than manually typing it into the Properties?
Are you talking about changing the chart colors by entering the color values or hex codes into the Color Spec field in the Properties window?
If so then, you are correct, that is the only way to do it except there is an option for multicolor single series charts. You can deselect that option if you want everything to be the same color. But the only way to change the colors of the columns or bars is to edit the color spec field.
Rachel Yaghoubzadeh if you are wanting a consistent color for each metric which may address your question you can do so in the project settings, see this entry in product central. One of the things I have done before is to set the colors for each metric to the corporate colors for a company.
Set the default colors for project metrics
Thanks for adding that post Paul Melican! Good tip!
