Chapter 10. Creating Charts > Formatting Charts

Formatting Charts

Although the built-in formatting defaults for Excel charts are typically quite good, the most professional results occur when you spend extra time formatting different chart elements so that they are as attractive and communicative as possible. The general way in which this is done is by use of the Format Object command, which you can access in three ways (in all cases you must first select the object you want to format):

  • Click the Format Object button on the Chart toolbar.

  • Right-click an element and from the shortcut menu that appears, choose Format object, where object changes in the command name depending on what object you've selected.

  • Choose Format, Selected object, where object changes in the command name depending on what object you've selected.
