Chapter 8. Creating Charts > Transposing Chart Plots

Transposing Chart Plots

Sometimes you need to look at your data in a different way, and Keynote can transpose the way it plots the data series and data sets, to give you a different perspective on your data.

In the example in Figure 8.14, the rows (data series) in the Chart Data Editor show income and expense figures distributed across four months, which are expressed in the columns (data sets). The resulting graph (Figure 8.15) groups each month's financial results together. If we transpose the data series and data sets, we get a very different view of the same data (Figure 8.16). In this view, you can see how income and expenses change over the four months. The income figures and the expense figures for all months are grouped together, making it easier to see the trend for each group over time. Keynote changes the legend of the graph to reflect the new ordering of the data, and the labels in the Chart Data Editor also change to match.
