Error description

  • You work with IBM SPSS Statistics 21.0.0.0 or 20.0.0.2. On Edit
    - Options dialog you click on Charts tab and select a new
    default color for simple charts by using this steps:
    - On Style Cycles you click on Colors button
    - On Styles to Edit the default color for simple charts is beige
    
    - You change this color for simple charts to any other, e.g. red
    from available color palette
    - Click Continue and OK
    
    Then you create a simple or 1-D boxplot with Graphs - Chart
    builder dialog. On the chart preview you see the new color e.g.
    red instead of beige. However, when you click OK on the created
    chart in the viewer you see that the boxplot is still created
    with the old default beige color and not with the new color.
    
    This was reported to IBM SPSS Development. It does only happen
    for Simple Boxplot and 1-D Boxplot.
    All other simple charts e.g. Simple Bar chart or Simple Area
    chart are displayed with the new red color.
