Optimizing color choices in line graph with a black background


I'm currently creating a visual that has hundreds of lines that is choosable by the user in a line chart. The problem is that the design of the visual calls for a black background.

This means that some of the color automatically chosen by PowerBI can tend to be a bit darker and harder to see against the black background. I notice that the only way to choose the line color is to individually change them in the visual settings, which is hard to do for hundreds of different lines.

Do anybody know of anyway that it is possible to make it so PowerBI will choose colors that are complementary to a dark theme?

Thank you!


@amitchandak, thank you for the help! It works to a certain extent, which I guess is enough!
