Formatting is an important thing for presentation. We can format almost everything on a worksheet.

As we all know, the default shape of the color legend is square. But sometimes, we really need to change the shape of the color legend. Let us do!

Create a simple chart like the image below. Now you can see the color legends and the shape. Tableau doesn’t have the option to make the color + shape legend. Here we are going to do that.

Now duplicate the already created sheet and remove the profit and place the ship mode to row shelf. We will get a chart as below.

Do some formatting and make the legend like below.
