    Change shaded area colors

    First I downloaded the county lines map. Next I added my Territories. I am now adding shaded areas (one group of shaded areas per Territory). In each of my territories the lower limit value is white. This means that I have white areas in each territory. I seem to be able to change the shaded area color group, yet the lower value is always white. Is there any was to change this?

    Re: Change shaded area colors

    You only have the predefined color palettes available - you can't specify your own.

    If you are using white shapes to blank out of areas that are not of interest, you could change these to a different color - perhaps a pale yellow for "parchment"?

    Re: Change shaded area colors

    I think I figured out a solution. I increased the number of ranges that I actually needed and named the range "blank". There are no values mapped to the "blank" data range. I have 4 different data ranges. By using the blank data range, I no longer have any shaded areas showing the white color which is automatically the bottom color in each range.
