Chapter 10. Creating Charts > Working with Charts

Working with Charts

The Chart Wizard is a useful tool for building and modifying charts. However, it falls short when you need to make certain specific changes to a chart. For example, the Chart Wizard's dialog boxes don't let you choose chart element colors, add floating text to the chart, or choose different data markers. To make these other types of changes, you have to edit the chart directly. In this section, you learn how to do that in order to create charts that are exactly as you want them.

Using the Chart Toolbar

The first tool in your bag of chart-editing tricks is the Chart toolbar, which displays by default when you select a chart. If it isn't displayed, right-click any toolbar and choose Chart from the shortcut menu. The Chart toolbar is shown in Figure 10.16.
