I have a pie chart problem. I am trying to symbolize pie charts with the same fields (50) for many different polygons. I would like the fields to remain the same color across all the generated pie charts, but every time I make a new pie chart, it assigns completely different colors. I tried the import button under symbology> charts > pie, but it doesn't give me options for layers that have already been symbolized with pie charts.
Is there a way to fix this? I am running Arc10 with all SPs. I don't know code.
I tried all of your suggestions, but ran into roadblocks each time:
>> 3. in the righthand pane right-click and select New and then Random Color Ramp
I can not select New... this option is greyed out. I can only select Copy. How do I paste this into my style? Will it paste the same colors for the categories every time?
>>You can also edit an existing color ramp in the layer symbology dialog by right-clicking on the field that shows the color ramp and selecting Properties. If you edit it this way make sure you right-click on the field that shows the color ramp and select Save to Style right after you have edited it. Otherwise ArcMap doesn't save the style.
I tried this as well, and I can save the style, but when I set up the pies for other layers, it doesn't pull up my saved style. When I select the same color ramp for all the layers, I get the same colors, but they are assigned to different categories.
