    Tip: You can filter which table to select fields from in the drop-down list.
    Tip: You can rearrange the order of the fields you have selected by dragging them to new positions in the list of selected fields.
  3. Type a name for the dimension.

  4. Type a description for the dimension (optional).

  5. If you want to specify a color, click S in the color drop down and select a color through one of the following methods:

    • Click one of the colors in the palette.
    • Type a 6 character color code in the Hex input field: #.
    • Click Ü at the bottom of the dialog, select a color in the color wheel, and optionally adjust the saturation slider.
  6. Add tags (optional).
