Lesson 25. Enhancing Your Charts > Selecting a Chart Part

Selecting a Chart Part

A chart is made up of several objects. For example, a chart may have a title, a legend, and various data series. To enhance these elements of your chart, you must first select the part of the chart you want to change. To do this, click that part or select it from the Chart Objects box on the Chart toolbar (see the next section for help with the toolbar). When a part is selected, handles (tiny black squares) form a box around it, as shown in Figure 25.1.

When a part is selected, you can move it by dragging it wherever you want: click on the object, hold down the mouse button and drag the object, then release the mouse button to "drop" it. To resize a part, select it and then drag one of its handles outward to make the object larger or inward to make it smaller. When the object is the size you want it, release the mouse button. You can resize the whole chart by selecting it first and then dragging one of its handles.
