Chapter 4. Inserting Charts > Creating Two Charts on a Slide

Creating Two Charts on a Slide

Although PowerPoint doesn't offer a slide layout for two charts, you can easily create one (Figure 4.29).

Figure 4.29. Two charts can be shown on one slide.


To create two charts on a slide:

1.
Use the New Slide button on the toolbar to insert a new slide with the Chart & Text or Text & Chart layout.

2.
To delete the text placeholder, click inside the placeholder, click the selection box border, and then press Delete (Figure 4.30).

3.
Create the first chart.

4.
Exit Microsoft Graph.

5.
To copy the chart, place the pointer on the embedded chart, and hold down Ctrl (Windows) or Option (Mac OS) as you drag to the other side of the slide (Figure 4.31).

6.
Revise the second chart.

7.
Exit Graph.

Figure 4.30. To create a slide with two charts, start with the Chart & Text layout.


Figure 4.31. You can create a second chart on a slide by dragging the first chart.


Tip

To make the two charts align with one another, choose the Align command.

See Aligning Objects in Chapter 11.


Tip

It's easier to compare data in the two charts when the axes use the same scale.

See Scaling the Axis in Chapter 5.


Tip

You can title each chart in the Titles tab of the Chart Options dialog box.

See Inserting Titles earlier in this chapter.
