PerformancePoint 2013 grid lines and font color do not work right


You are using PerformancePoint 2013 and Dashboard Designer 2013 to make scorecards.  On those scorecards you want to not show grid lines and you want to change the default font color.  All works and looks fine in Dashboard Designer but when you upload to SharePoint 2013 the grid lines still show and the font color has not changed.



PerformancePoint's implementation of SharePoint themes caused this issue, you can work around this issue by making a small change to a PerformancePoint style sheet.

  1. Make a backup copy of this file:  (C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\Web Server Extensions\15\TEMPLATE\LAYOUTS\1033\STYLES\Themable\performancepoint.css)
  2. Open the file from step 1 in notepad, all of the text is on one super long line so it will be difficult to read.
  3. Search for this text:  table.sctb th.scc,table.sctb td.scc{/* [ReplaceColor(themeColor:"Lines")] */ border-color:#ababab;border-width:1px;border-style:solid;color:inherit !Important;}
  4. Replace above text with this:  table.sctb th.scc, table.sctb td.scc {border-color: #ababab;}
  5. Save the file
  6. Reload the scorecard with your web browser  (if set to not show grid lines, they will not show, and the font color will match whatever color was set in Dashboard Designer)


This issue maybe resolved in a future release of the product.
