      I am working on a dashboard for my organization, and while I was developing the dashboard the font color of the drop down change and I was wondering if anyone knows how I can change the color back.

          Is it in the sheet or filter?

            Hi Mackenzie,


            The process is very similar for filters or parameters. Below I have walked through a parameter example however you will find the same steps apply for a filter.


            If you select the small downwards arrow at the top right corner of your parameter/filter, a dropdown will appear. One of the options on this dropdown is "Format Parameters" or "Format Filters"



            Selecting this option will display another menu on the left hand side. This menu can be used to format the "Body" of your parameters/filters, which is the list you are seeing.




            Hope this helps.


            Kind regards,

                I should mention that in my desktop the color looks fine, it only changes when I post it to my tableau server
