Event type colors not shown in Dashboards

Path Finder

I have created an event type and set a color for it. Events colored in search app and reports however they are not shown in the Dashboards. I have save it as both Inline Search and Report however issue is still the same. Do you have any suggestion to colorized Dashboard Panels?

Best Regards,
Cem

can you share some syntax of what you're displaying in the dashboard? coloring eventtypes i believe only shows when viewing raw events. If you just want to highlight certain text, in 6.5, you can use table formatting to highlight values.
