Color legend for line and clustered column chart not changing

I set the default color (Monthly Sales) as a dark blue and the Running Total line as a yellow-orange.  The graph displays the correct colors, but the legend shows Monthly Sales as being a slightly different yellow-orange color than the Running Total line.


How do I make the legend colors match the graph colors?  It does this automatically on every other graph I've made.

Super old post, but I just ran into this same issue.


Seems like a glitch, but was able to fix by removing/re-adding the measure to Column y-axis.

I had the same issues and removing and re-adding the column measure fixed it for me! Thanks!

Any update? I am experiencing the exact same issue (see screenshot). Legend colors are correctly displayed for the line values, however for the colomn value the legend is displayed as white.

Test with this table and add columns to a "line and clustered column chart" as below



Please check your settings for this visual comparing with mine.




Additionally, do you use the lastest version of Power BI, please update to the lastest version.
