Blue.pngTo see the changes at the Exploded Cluster you have to click the symbol in the Preview Area.

Blue.pngWe will use a Fill here, otherwise the exploded cluster is transparent. Then it may happen, that two point symbologies are overlapping and this isn't a desired result.


  • Change it to white (RGB Code: FFFFFF).


  • Click Outline exploded clusterpoint.png.
Blue.pngThere will be no changes at all at Outline.


  • Click Delete style.png to get rid of the Stroke Stroke symbolizer.png.
  • Click Save to apply the changes and to save the style.
