Match a column with color names to a particular color palette?
My dataset contains a column with priorities - red, yellow, green. How do I select a palette to match this?

Editing a JSON file is beyond most users. This should be easier.

We don't have easy specification of color palettes yet, but there is a way to manually specify a color palette:
There is a feature called “Palettes” that is turned off by default. If you go to “Settings | Icon bar” and click on “Palettes”, then its button will be added to the icon bar.
Once the “Palettes” button has been added to the icon bar, click on the button and it will open the “Palettes panel” where you can EXPORT the standard palettes to your local machine and then customize them with a text editor and then IMPORT it back as a user-defined palette into SandDance.
There’s a bug you will need to work around by:
- specify the exact name of your custom file (as it resides on your local machine) in “paletteSetName” (in the palette JSON file) – including the case of the letters. Don’t include the path – just the base name (e.g., myCustomPalette.json).
Then, this custom palettes should appear as one of the available custom color palettes in the Color panel.
