Combining Drawing Tools with Charts and Worksheets

Understanding how and when to use tools, as well as how to combine tools to create dramatic effects, can enhance your charts, worksheets, and tables. The difficulty is that no set rule exists to help you decide which tools to combine, or even how to combine them. This chapter attempts to show you some ideas on how to effectively combine tools to enhance your information. Start by picking up magazines, newspapers, and periodicals to get ideas for presentations, and then visualize which tools it would take to re-create the presentation shown in the literature.

For the most part, there are few presentations that you can’t re-create with all the tools available in Excel. The drawing tools, in particular, offer a wide variety of opportunities for improving your charts and worksheets—making them more understandable and simultaneously more interesting. The following sections of this chapter take off from those basics, combining drawing objects in unique and sometimes unexpected ways to give your worksheets and charts a polished look.
