Colors

Simple Reference Lines

Use simple reference lines if the area or limit they represent does not carry a semantic meaning. In this case, all the lines have the same color and only the labels differ.

Semantic Reference Lines

Use semantic reference lines if you want if you want to show easily distinguishable limits or areas in semantic categories. You can use between one and a maximum of all four semantic colors in one chart. The semantic colors are used as follows:

  • Negative (red)
  • Critical (orange)
  • Positive (green)
  • Neutral (gray)
