Someone has already asked how to randomize colors by class in QGIS new symbology, but the answer there does not work with datasets containing more than 100 unique values since the Random option only allows you to create only 100 colors. Using that technique, the features get categorized using the equal breaks method making the color the same for many consecutive features instead of assigning one per feature and then starting over with the 100 colors again after they have all been used once. My goal is to differentiate features in a polygon layer with many similarly located and named features, e.g., Woodlands 1 and Woodlands 2 are next to each other and so need to be different colors.
Is there a way to make sure that each consecutive feature is a different color from the immediately preceding and following feature? In the old symbology, you can just use "Randomize" to achieve this. Is there a way to do it in the new symbology? Thanks for any ideas or help!
