Lesson 24. More Ways to Enhance Charts > Changing the Perspective of 3-D Charts

Changing the Perspective of 3-D Charts

3-D charts are commonly used to illustrate volume. In order to make the various three-dimensional elements stand out, you may want to tilt the plot area or rotate it. Here's how you do that:

  1. Choose Corners from the Chart Objects drop-down list on the Chart toolbar.

  2. Click the lower-right corner, as shown in Figure 24.3.

  3. Drag the corner to change the 3-D perspective of the plot area. A wire frame follows the mouse pointer to show you approximately how your chart will look in that perspective.

  4. When you like the perspective, release the mouse button. Excel redraws your 3-D chart to match the perspective you choose.
