Superstore example - Set Days to Ship on the color shelf, try editing colour, all is well
Now right click, and swap it to Discrete, this is what you were seeing...

the Color Shelf. Continuous pills can only use ordered-sequential or

1) Change the pill on the Color Shelf to be discrete so you can use your
2) Create an ordered-sequential or ordered-diverging palette, restart
Tableau, and then use that palette for your measure.
