Chapter 8. Creating Charts > Adding Charts

Adding Charts

You'll want to add a chart to a slide that has plenty of room for the chart, though you can add a chart to any slide. Of the built-in master slides, the ones that are most appropriate for charts are Title - Top, Title & Bullets - Left, Title & Bullets - Right, and of course Blank, which is a good master slide to use for charts that need to be as large as possible.

To add a chart to a slide

1.
Display the slide where you want to add a chart.

2.
Click the Chart button on the toolbar, or choose Insert > Chart.

A sample chart appears on the slide (Figure 8.4) and the Chart Data Editor and the Chart Inspector open.

Figure 8.4. This sample chart appears whenever you add a chart to a slide.


3.
In the Chart Inspector, choose the chart type that you want from the pop-up menu (Figure 8.5).

4.
Enter your data into the Chart Data Editor.
