Lesson 20. Enhancing a Graph > Changing the Look of 3-D Charts

Changing the Look of 3-D Charts

3-D charts are very attractive, but they're also a bit tricky to format. To make the various 3-D elements stand out, you may want to tilt the chart or rotate it. Here's how to format a 3-D chart:

  1. Choose Chart, 3-D View. The 3-D View dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 20.3. As you make changes, a wire-frame picture in the middle of the dialog box reflects the changes.

  2. To change the elevation (the height from which you see the chart), click on the up or down elevation buttons, or type a number in the Elevation box.

  3. To change the rotation (the rotation around the Z-axis), click on the left or right rotation buttons, or type a number in the Rotation box.

  4. If there is a perspective option, you can change the perspective (perceived depth) by clicking on the up or down perspective controls, or typing a number in the Perspective box. Not all charts have this control.

  5. To see the proposed changes on the actual chart, click on the Apply button.

  6. When you are done making changes, click OK, or press Enter.
