Chart tips

  • Drag data on to the chart to add it (or select the data, choose Copy, select the chart, choose Paste).
  • Double-click on a column (or bar or...) or background and click Fill Effects. Click Picture and you can fill with a picture!
  • Two single clicks isolate one piece of a group (e.g. a piece of a pie chart). You may then edit that element (drag, delete, or double-click it).
  • Create a 3-D chart type then select the chart until you see handles on the corners of the cube. Drag that corner to see your data from a different perspective.
