Chapter 8. Creating Charts > Working with Pie Charts

Working with Pie Charts

Pie charts work a bit differently than the other charts in Keynote. Because a pie chart doesn't have an X-axis and a Y-axis, Keynote charts only the first data set in the Chart Data Editor. If the data series are in rows in the Chart Data Editor, only the first column will be charted. If the data series are in columns in the Chart Data Editor, only the first row will be charted. A single pie chart represents a single data set, and each wedge in the pie chart represents one element of that set. If there are other data sets in the Chart Data Editor, and you switch the chart type to a pie chart, the excess data sets will not disappear, but they will not be used, either.

Because pie charts are different, the Chart Inspector changes to reflect those differences. For example, because a pie chart does not have more than one axis, the items in the Axis tab of the Chart Inspector are disabled, and different options appear in the Series tab of the Chart Inspector.
