Is there a way to set male & female name colors different?

When i go to wall chart colors it seems i can only change name/text etc to one color, but not male & female to say blue & red.

 

If i then go to each individual , click/properties i can change name and event text to different colors, but when i click on a group of individuals you can only change name and text to same color!  I dont want to have to go to each box separately !

 

If this cant be done in v6, can it in v7?

 

Thanks for any tips!

Same settings in RM 6 & 7.

Color code your database first using Tools>Color Code People.

Select the color and the option "People selected from a list"

Click OK

Click Mark Group > Select people by data fields

Filter: Sex - is male (is female) depending on your color choice.

Click OK until its done

 

Select the option in the Wall Chart settings to "Print color coding"

I have now done this and the sexes are in right color within the database, but when i create the wall chart with the colors set to boxes=white and the text left as is, the chart appears with the boxes colored red & blue as per the sex, but the name text is in black or whatever or it is set to, not red and blue.   I would like the sex colors on a white box in the chart not just the database, but its not happening!   The names look fine in the database.

what else do i have to do? 

Thanks

Color-Coding is applied to the box background when enabled. The box color option will only apply then if the person had no color-coding. You can control the font color but there isn't a way to make that follow the group colors.
