Is it possible to change the background color of one chart? I tried chart, graphic setting, background color and changed the color and hit apply but it didn't change the color of the chart I had highlighted.

I've searched and found that under global settings, graphic settings, chart background color that it changes ALL the charts and I'm looking to only highlight one chart.

Thanks for any help

try this:

The first version is opened by selecting Chart >> Graphics Settings on the menu.

This is the chart specific Graphics Settings window and lets you individually set the Colors and Widths for various chart objects for the active chart. And you can set the Chart Text Font for the chart as well.

When you use this specific Graphics Settings window, you need to uncheck the Use Global Graphics Settings Instead of These Settings option on this window

Yes you can change the color of individual charts. And the documentation is here:

The 'apply' button does not work on graphics Settings chart. You have to press 'ok' to validate the change.

It is not easy to change the colors this way because you have to click on 'ok' each time and reopen the window.

Is this a bug?
