Using Multiple Themes In One Analysis / Dashboard

Just the other day I discovered the “Style” tab when formatting visuals in free-form mode, and I think it’s one of the best features in Quicksight! Being able to change the background / border colors AND their opacity values has been incredible for letting me customize my visualizations.

However, I realized very quickly that I would also need to be able to change the color of things like the axis labels in a visualization. For example, by default these labels are generally black. So if I wanted to create a black line graph with a white title, it looks great but none of the labels on the x or y axis are readable.

I know this is something you can change when adjusting the theme for an analysis, using the “primary foreground” option. However, this has to be applied to every object in an analysis, which is a deal breaker. To make my one line graph look good in this example, I’d have to sacrifice the visual quality of every other object in the analysis.

This is so close to being an incredible feature if only we weren’t limited to one theme per analysis. Being able to apply themes on a sheet by sheet, or object by object basis, would be a monumental breakthrough in my eyes.

I’m sure I’m not the first person to be frustrated by this limitation, and would love to see Quicksight implement a solution.

Hi @Tytus.Hamilton
I agree this would be useful to have more granular design control per visualization. At AWS, our roadmap is primarily driven by our customers. Your feedback helps us build a better service. I will send you a private message to get your information so that I may track your feature request.
Also, some further options to help are the following:

–Double clicking the title of a visualization allows you to change font/colors
–In FreeForm mode you can add an insight to an analysis>options>customize narrative. This allows you to add floating text anywhere with any formatting that you would like. This may help with some of your color design.

I hope this helps.
