Edit the widget using the options button.\n2. Open the Colors menu in the chart settings.\n4. Select the series you want to change the color. Use the + icon to edit a new series.\n5. Select the desired color. You can select colors graphically, or enter a custom RGB, HEX, or HSL code.\n\n> **Note**: You can use dedicated facets or self defined names in facet cases queries"

"text": "## 0️⃣❓ Null Value Customization →\n---\nSometimes line charts or area charts can look broken when there is a zero in the event attribute you are querying. However, a null value might not represent the situation correctly, so now you have various options for displaying them.\n\n**Options for handling null values include:**\n1. **Leave as null (default)**: Null values show as gaps in the chart, which can result in disconnected lines\n2. **Remove the value**: Null points won’t exist in the chart. For example, a chart that displays a data point per hour in a day would show fewer than 24 points. \n3. **Preserve the last value**: Null values will keep the value from the previous period. For example: if a chart reports cumulative sales each hour, but is missing an hour’s data, the missing hour would reflect the same number of sales as the previous hour.\n4. **Transform the value to 0**: The missing data shows up as a zero.\n\n> **Note:** This example uses an event that happens rarely, so you might have to use the time picker to see null values. \n\nTo customize null values, edit the chart and open the Null values menu."
