Formatting Charts

Graph gives you the ability to format all the different elements your chart includes. You might want to change the font of a title, resize the labels, change the background color, change the line thickness, apply a pattern, or do any number of other things.

To choose the chart object you want to work with, double-click the chart, and then click the Chart Objects arrow on the Standard toolbar. A list of possible objects appears, as shown in Figure 14-11. Click your choice, and then Graph selects that item in the chart. You can then right-click the item to display a format choice—for example, right-clicking a legend displays a shortcut menu with Format Legend. When you select that command, a formatting dialog box appears in which you can select the Patterns, Font, and Placement for the legend.
