Chapter 22. Formatting Charts > Enhancing Charts with Shapes

Enhancing Charts with Shapes

Adding shapes to a chart enables you to provide additional visual interest and clarify data within the chart. Figure 22.17 shows how you can effectively use some of the drawing tools in a chart. In this example, the season was added across the charted time and the fiscal quarter names were applied between the x-axis and its labels. For more information, see Chapter 23, “Professional Charting Techniques.”

Figure 22.17. You can add shapes to give several dimensions to your charts, including timelines and time spans that further tell the story of the chart.
