Overview

Yellowfin has some styling options available through Administration. These options allow you to define the default styles of content, rather than system components.

One area of high visual impact is to set the default chart styles within Yellowfin. If no styles are defined Yellowfin automatically selects colours for charts. Although you can manually set many chart colours, setting the defaults means that the charts will be uniform across the system.
