What happened to data colors and default color?

My current version of Power BI is 2.106.883.0 64-bit (June, 2022).

With this release, I noticed that in the formatting options for clustered bar charts, "Data Colors" was renamed to "Columns".

I have a need to update the colors of specific bars in my chart based on conditional formatting.

All content I have come across so far still refers to using "Data Colors > Default color", but this option does not exist anymore.

Can anyone tell me where/if I can find the option to set conditional formatting on my bar colors?

Thanks a bunch.

OK, I think I've figured it out.

When you add multiple values in the chart, which I usually do, you don't get the default option.

It's only when I add a single value to the x-axis, the default option appears.

 

In other words, you can only use conditional formatting on columns or bars if you only have one measure in the graph.

I want to change the color of the graph depending on the value of the bars

But I can't find data colors, or bars, I think the option is called conditional graphs.

This is exactly what I was looking for! It used to be under Data colors and now it's under Bars. Much appreciated

Not sure which version of Power BI your are using @v-jayw-msft . I'm currently using the July 2022 release, and below is what I have. There is no "Bars" option:

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

I'm using the July 2022 version too.

Under bar chart it's called "Bars" and under column chart it's called "Columns".

I noticed the same thing...looks like an "Update" thats actually a regrssion... but on the bright side you can definitely conditionally format the Y and X axis titles and Legend text 😖

I am really hoping this is NOT the case. I can't imagine why Microsoft would take such an important feature away, and think that users would just be content with conditional formatting on the text label around the graphs than the actual bars itself.
