Hi, tks for this guide, really useful. Just one question: i displaying a reverse pyramid next to a vertical one, but i'm having difficulties setting the same color across pyramid... in fact when checking "values in reverse order" all colors become darker and even if i customize one by one, the color in the pyramid is not reflecting the selected one. any suggestion on how to change colors?

Hi, tks for this guide, really useful :) just one question: i want to display the reverse pyramid next to a vertical one but i'm not able to set the same color across pyramids. In fact in the reverse pyramid, colors are darker than in the original one (you can see the same in your example above). Any suggestion on how to properly set colors? Tks Claudio
