On a line chart, can you prevent PowerBI from color coding any line as white?

This is a two-parter:

 

1. Because of the number of entities, it's impossible to assign a color to each line, which is why I leave it up to PowerBI to automatically do. However, a customer showed me lines showing up as white (on a white background). Is there a way to prevent this?

 

2. The colors that are automatically assigned when I view the report on my computer are different from what is assigned when my customer views it from his computer. What causes this?

Hi @new_to_powerbi 

Depending on the screen settings, colors, and sizes may change. Unfortunately, we have no control over this except to test with the customer after you publish the report.

It is possible to build/choose color palettes. You can simply choose or build another palette and then do a test with the customer to see if everything is working well.
