    How to open the Preferences.tps

    martin.schlotthauber

      Hey there,

      I have the Need to edit or create a new custom colour set. I`ve read some Posts about how to do... so far so good.

       

      But once I try to open the Preferences.tps , it doesn't work.

       

      How can I open this file to edit the colours?

       

      THX in advance!

          Hey Martin,

           

          A normal text editor like Notepad or Notepad ++ should do the trick!

           

          Cheers,

          Matthias

            You can open in notepad.

             

            I customize mine and it worked OK.

             

            Path(mine is in Portuguese):

            C:\Users\user\Documents\Meu Repositório do Tableau\Preferences.tps

             

            <?xml version='1.0'?>

            <workbook>

              <preferences>

              <color-palette name="Primarias" type="regular" >

              <color>#113388</color>

                Hey Martin,

                 

                In case you have no additional questions regarding the Preferences file, could you mark this thread as solved?

                This way it dissapears from the list of open questions!

                 

                Cheers,

                Matthias
